A Message from the Disciplinary Counsel

Thank you for visiting our website. Our office is committed to ensuring that lawyers and judges in the state of Ohio act professionally and ethically under the Ohio Rules of Professional Conduct and the Code of Judicial Conduct.  We strive to educate members of the bench and bar regarding their ethical obligations, but when a lawyer or judge acts unethically, our office will conduct a thorough and fair investigation to ensure the public's protection.  In addition to educating, investigating, and prosecuting Ohio's lawyers and judges, our office also investigates and prosecutes persons who may be engaging in the unauthorized practice of law.  Our office strives to treat all persons involved in the disciplinary process with the utmost integrity, respect, and professionalism.
