Florida Bar and Board of Bar Examiner Matters
Florida Bar Complaints, Attorney Discipline, Florida Board Bar Examiners, Bar Reinstatement and Bar Admissions
While many complaints field against attorneys are without merit, some can be extremely serious and may result in suspension or disbarment. The Law Offices of Richard B. Marx and Associates is experienced and aggressive in the defense of those who have been served with a Bar grievance (a/k/a/ Bar inquiry or complaint), facing the loss of their license or are attempting to become licensed or relicensed. Richard B. Marx practices within the very narrow area of law concerning attorney disciplinary matters, legal ethics and professional responsibility. He has been defending lawyers in attorney disciplinary cases and giving expert opinions on issues of ethicsand professional responsibility in the practice of law. Mr. Marx has been trying cases before judges and juries for more than 40 years for Florida bar and board of bar examiner matters. He is very knowledgeable as to how to prepare cases for trial including but not limited to preparing witnesses and the client so that they will be able to intelligently testify in court. He is able to design a strategy for winning at trial whether it is before a judge or jury. This separates him from most lawyers in the disciplinary field since the knowledge of the Rules Regulating the Florida Bar is not by itself sufficient to successfully defend a disciplinary case. Mr. Marx's background and experience gives him a distant advantage in defending lawyers. In many instances his experience on how to respond to Bar and its procedures provides the knowledge necessary to resolve cases at the lawyer. When a formal Florida Bar complaint is unavoidable, he will assist you in effectively defending your license to practice law. His experience and legal skills have resulted in excellent results for our clients.

PROFESSIONAL MISCONDUCT AND PROFESSIONAL LICENSURE
Today most professionals are increasingly subject to misconduct investigations and disciplinary proceedings by their licensing boards and agencies. Moreover, the initial application process has grown more rigorous in an effort to thwart off perceived potential harms in the future. Over the last decade it has become increasingly more difficult to get through initial character and fitness determinations and be deemed eligible for licensure by state licensing boards. Furthermore, an increase in disciplinary investigations and sanctions has caused a rise in the number of forced surrenders and revocations in an effort to apply stricter standards upon reapplication thereby removing potential threats. For example obtaining a professional license with a disciplinary history or criminal conviction is an uphill battle for any professional and should not be fought without effective legal representation. If you are involved in this vicious cycle you should consider obtaining competent legal counsel to assist you.
