Ethics and Discipline
Assistance in Ethics and Discipline in Columbia, SC
Almost every practicing lawyer knows what it is like to receive a notice of investigation from the Supreme Court’s Office of Disciplinary Counsel. The feelings of anger, frustration, helplessness, and dread when dealing with issues of ethics and discipline can seem overwhelming.
There are also times when a lawyer will face a claim of a conflict of interest, or even a motion to recuse or force a lawyer out of a case.
John Nichols has represented a number of lawyers and judges in matters before the Office of Disciplinary Counsel, and has served on the South Carolina Bar’s Professional Responsibility Committee for nearly two decades.
He’s worked extensively on proposed changes and additions to the Rules of Professional conduct, and has also lectured extensively on various aspects of the Rules of Professional Conduct and Rules for Lawyer Disciplinary Enforcement.
He serves as special counsel to the Ethics Committees for both the South Carolina Senate and the SC House of Representatives, has appeared before the South Carolina State Ethics Commission, and is a current member of the South Carolina Bar’s Resolution of Fee Disputes Board.
