Mazzola Lindstrom attorneys have decades of experience in the field of attorney professionalism.
We advise and represent attorneys in disputes with their law firms, employers, and clients, handling litigation involving fee disputes between law firms, or amongst partners after a law firm dissolution, and litigation involving allegations of professional misconduct. Often attorneys need a second opinion, so to speak, as to whether a course of conduct is or is not contrary to principles of ethics, rather than relying on their own judgment. Mazzola Lindstrom attorneys often serve as a “hotline” for clients to discuss such issues as they are unfolding, so problems can be averted. Of course, we are often called upon after an attorney realizes they may have improperly crossed an ethical line, and in such matters, we advise our client, with utmost discretion, how best to remedy the problem and ameliorate the risk.
