Bar Defense

Your law license represents the most significant investment in your professional career. When your license is in jeopardy, whether from the Florida Board of Bar Examiners or the Florida Bar and the lawyer regulation and disciplinary system, let the experienced lawyers of Barakat Law stand beside you to defend your license to practice law.

Brian Barakat has been an active participant in the Florida Bar disciplinary system, serving in a leadership role as Vice-Chair of a Miami grievance committee. If you are charged with ethical violations, let us put our experience to work for you in defense of your license to practice law.

When the Florida Bar investigates and prosecutes complaints against lawyers, which are governed by the Rules Regulating the Florida Bar, the proceedings are only quasi-judicial. That means that the rules and procedures governing these proceedings are different from those governing criminal and civil matters.

Don’t be caught off guard trying to navigate a system of law with which you are unfamiliar. Countless lawyers, whose complaints could have been dismissed at the earliest stages of the disciplinary process, are instead required to go through extra time and expense to continue to defend against a bar complaint simply because they did not understand the process and did not know the applicable rules. Let the lawyers of Barakat Law guide and defend you in the complex and unique Florida Bar disciplinary process.

While it is best to bring in an experienced lawyer at the earliest stages of the disciplinary process, we can help no matter how far the complaint has gone:
