In communicating with Texas Attorneys from all over the State, it is apparent that average solo practicioners, and small firms, believe neither the State Bar of Texas nor the grievance system that is self-regulated is in their best interest.
When a judge who has never tried a civil much less a complicated disbarment case gets appointed to a grievance matter or a disciplinary prosecutor can have complete immunity from wrongful, intentional acts, there are changes that need to be made.
For those who are concerned with how the SBOT operates and how best to protect the public but at the same time keep attorneys from being wrongfully prosecuted, this site is a place to have a discussion and to post information. The same is true for the Facebook site, “ How To Hold the Office of Chief Disciplinary Counsel Accountable.” Posting can be done there. Please help direct other wrongfully prosecuted attorneys to this site so we can get their information out. As Ayann Hirsi Ali has written: “ There are times when silence becomes an accomplice of injustice.” Now is the time to let your voice be heard.
