Receiving a letter from ODC saying there’s a complaint against you is decidedly unpleasant. Most attorneys don’t know what to expect and what to do – or not do – in response. But more than anything, attorneys want to know how to avoid getting a complaint in the first place.
We will cover these topics by discussing how the process works start to finish: types of sanctions and factors at play for imposing them; common types of complaints; and some recent cases and updates. All of these topics will be covered with an eye toward best practices and preventing misconduct.

Ryan S. Little has served as an Assistant Disciplinary Counsel at ODC since 2018. Since joining, he has been inspired by Hawai?i-licensed attorneys’ desire to always conduct themselves ethically.

When not at work, Ryan is likely spending time at the beach, or a pau hana, or both.
