Defending a Formal Bar Complaint

Following a finding of probable cause, entry of an emergency suspension or a suspension based on a criminal felony conviction, the Bar prosecutors will file a formal complaint in the Florida Supreme Court charging you with violations of the Rules Regulating the Florida Bar. Your bar complaint will then be assigned to a local judge to act as referee in your case. You need an experienced Bar defense attorney to represent you in these proceedings. The rules governing these proceedings, the rules regarding the admissibility of evidence and the process of the final hearing are all very different than those in any other area of law.
