An Experienced Advocate For Your ARDC Defense

You have spent your career practicing law and acted according to your ethical oath. Unfortunately, one of your clients disagrees and has filed a complaint with the Illinois Attorney Registration & Disciplinary Commission (ARDC).

The unfounded nature of the complaint does not mean you can take it lightly or assume things will work out in your favor. There are times when everyone – even established lawyers – needs the help of a lawyer and that time is now for you.

Insight From A Lawyer You Can Trust

Mary Patricia Benz understands the ins and outs of the ARDC defense process. She served for more than 10 years as a volunteer member on the ARDC Hearing and Inquiry Boards. This time as a board member and chair provides a solid foundation for defending lawyers before the ARDC and providing counsel about ethics issues. You can rely on her to provide you with sound advice and guidance on topics of importance to you and your firm, such as employee discipline, retirement plans, conflicts of interests, use of nonlawyer employees, fee-sharing issues, quantum meruit fees, reporting of attorney fraud and more.

Now Is Not The Time To Defend Yourself

It is tempting to handle your own defense but ARDC defense benefits from an outside perspective. You can rely on Mary Patricia Benz to tell you what you need to hear and build a strong defense. Call 872-777-9936 to schedule a consultation.
