Every lawyer is obligated to comply with a code of ethics that is detailed in state law. These rules define a lawyer’s conduct in almost all situations. A lawyer has a duty, in all dealings with a client, to act with good faith, fairness and integrity. He or she must possess the skill, knowledge and background that are standards of the profession. Improper actions are never allowed and often lead to actions against the attorney. If you have experienced a situation with legal representation that you feel was less than fair then you have the right to question those actions. Rikard & Protopapas Law Firm has spent decades working with clients who have been harmed by poor or unethical legal representation. We know how people should be treated by the legal profession and work hard to make sure those standards apply in all situations.
