Created on August 31, 2020
Attorneys occasionally find themselves subject to an ethics investigation. Such investigations often result in a quantum of discipline which is usually determined by a balancing of aggravating and mitigating factors. If you are an attorney in New Jersey, it will help to learn what makes the disciplinary authorities tick - i.e., what factors move the sliding scale up or down.
In this quick-moving, tongue-in-cheek program, New Jersey ethics attorney Marc Garfinkle offers a lesson in aggravating factors - those acts and facts which will make things worse for you if you are facing a disciplinary proceeding. Couched as a guide for attorneys seeking to get suspended, this humorous program takes a serious look at the way in which discipline is determined - and maybe keep you from facing discipline in the first place.
