Does the attorney or law firm have a disciplinary record with the state bar of any state?
Lawyers who commit unethical conduct in New Jersey are subject to discipline ranging from an admonition, the least serious discipline, to a reprimand, censure, suspension from practice, or permanent disbarment from practice. You should know who your attorney is and his or her history. You can search the disciplinary histories at http://www.judiciary.state.nj.us/oae/discipline.htm. At Andres Mejer & Associates, none of our attorneys have ever been cited for any ethics violations before any state bar.
