While many complaints filed 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 ethics and professional responsibility in the practice of law for 30 years. Mr. Marx has been trying cases before judges and juries for more than 40 years.  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 many lawyers in the disciplinary field since knowledge of the Rules Regulating the Florida Bar is not by itself sufficient to successfully defend a disciplinary case.

In many instances his experience on how to respond to the Florida Bar and its procedures provides the knowledge necessary to resolve cases during the early stages of the process. When a formal Florida Bar complaint is unavoidable, he will assist you in effectively defending your license to practice law.
