Montgomery McCracken’s Professional Responsibility Practice provides experienced and skilled representation of attorneys before the Disciplinary Board of the Pennsylvania Supreme Court and its Hearing Committees.
With the recent advent of discipline on consent, it is more important than ever for attorneys facing allegations of misconduct to have skilled counsel representing them from the outset. Our attorneys have the knowledge and relationships necessary to effectively negotiate discipline on consent with the Office of Disciplinary Counsel before a Petition for Discipline is filed. If a Petition for Discipline is filed, our seasoned litigators are prepared and ready to defend through all the stages of the process, including briefing and argument to the Disciplinary Board itself.
We also represent attorneys facing reciprocal discipline in New Jersey and before the United States District Courts. We represent applicants to the Bar before the Pennsylvania Board of Law Examiners and provide ethical advice and opinions on the application of the Rules of Professional Conduct. We are committed to providing the highest quality and most cost-effective legal services. Our dedication to client service emphasizes teamwork, creativity, flexibility, and a timely response to our clients’ needs.
