Each state has specific rules governing the professional conduct for attorneys. When an attorney does not live up to their state’s code of conduct, a disciplinary board will take action. The consequences of an attorney’s misconduct may result in a simple warning or disbarment. However, if the lawyer’s misconduct is illegal in nature, he or she can be prosecuted through a criminal court.
