Sometimes dealing with the State Bar of California isn't easy.  The State Bar of California is an amalgam of civil, administrative, and criminal procedures that make for a trap for the unwary. I understand that your integrity and reputation have been impuned and your livelihood may be at risk.  At the investigation stage, harm can be contained and not allowed to spread into a fishing expedition.  At trial, alleged misconduct can be re-characterized and mitigated. Whether you just received a letter from the State Bar or are headed to trial, I can help. With 30 years of experience, I offer limited scope representation during the investigation stage to put a stop to the complaint.  Thereafter, I offer full representation at trial and before the Review Department on appeal.  I also offer preventative consultations and advice.
