Standards for Lawyer Sanctions: Bar counsel, referees and the Supreme Court of Florida follow these standards before recommending or imposing discipline.
Regulation of Lawyer Conduct: Processing and investigation of inquiries and complaints are a basic responsibility of the Bar as mandated by the Florida Supreme Court. The Bar serves to protect the public from unethical lawyers.
