Should You Sue Over Bad Reviews?

What to Do When You Make a Mistake in Law Practice

By William Vogeler, Esq.

In case you haven't learned, you are wrong. It's as universally true as the Earth is the center of the universe. By the way, everybody except Copernicus used to believe that.

No Moral Turpitude for Lawyer's Misdemeanor DUIs

By William Vogeler, Esq.

Raj Tanden got some good news and some bad news from the California State Bar Court. The good news was that the court's review panel found no moral turpitude for his misdemeanor DUI's. That was huge because moral turpitude can mean disbarment. The bad news was that the court recommended he be suspended for a year, far more discipline than the disciplinary judge ordered. It just goes to show there's nothing good about driving under the influence or being in the crosshairs of the State Bar.
