Florida Lawyer Complaints and the Disciplinary Review Committee
The Florida Bar Disciplinary Review Committee (DRC) oversees the prosecution and appeals for disciplinary violations by Florida lawyers. When a client, opposing counsel, or judge files a complaint against an attorney, it goes through a preliminary investigation, geological branch investigation, and then is sent to a grievance committee to determine probable cause. The DRC oversees this process and committee board members review each case before it is sent to the Florida Supreme Court, making recommendations on disciplinary action, dismissal, or requesting additional review. Additionally, members of the DRC recommend policy lawyer regulation and other disciplinary matters. What does the average Florida lawyer need to know to avoid this process?
