Cohen and Wolf's Legal Ethics Group counsels and represents attorneys, law firms and persons seeking admission to the Connecticut Bar in matters concerning licensing and professional discipline as well as litigation. We assist and defend attorneys and law firms in disciplinary proceedings including grievance complaints and court sanction hearings, IOLTA account audits, fee disputes, malpractice actions, and admission and reinstatement proceedings. We also serve as expert witnesses in the areas of professional ethics and professional liability. Our services are practical and proactive, because we believe that some complaints which might otherwise be resolved can instead result in findings of liability or probable cause if attorneys seek to represent themselves without the assistance of experienced counsel.

We also offer risk management services, and our focus is to assist lawyers, law firms and in-house counsel in minimizing risk of disciplinary or malpractice exposure with services such as office assessments, file review, pseudo audits, and general or issue-specific consultations.

Our Professional Ethics Group offers seasoned advice. One member is a former First Assistant Chief Disciplinary Counsel in Connecticut. Another member has served as Counsel for the Grievance Committee of the U.S. District Court for the District of Connecticut. One of our attorneys is a longstanding member of the Professional Ethics Committee of the Connecticut Bar Association, and another has been appointed as trustee for disbarred, suspended or inactive attorneys.
