Are You Facing An ARDC Disciplinary Hearing?

The role of the Illinois Attorney Registration & Disciplinary Commission (ARDC) is tasked with maintaining the integrity of legal profession throughout the state. When the ARDC receives a complaint from the member of the public or another licensed attorney, it is their responsibility to initiate an investigation, which may result in an ethics panel or disciplinary board hearing.

If you are a licensed attorney and have received notification of an ethics complaint or disciplinary investigation about dishonest conduct, it is important to begin protecting your reputation and your license as quickly as possible. For many of these matters, an outcome may be resolved through a negotiated settlement. Give your lawyer every chance of success by starting your defense early.

For more than 40 years, I have been protecting attorneys and licensed professionals from disbarment, license suspension and other unfair discipline by government agencies such as the ARDC.
