The NYCLA Committee on Professional Ethics accepts both written and telephone inquiries on ethics matters and provides advisory opinions. Members are encouraged to review The Rules of Professional Conduct first. For phone or email assistance please contact the appropriate member listed below.
Questions to the hotline are limited to an inquiring
attorney’s own conduct under New York’s Rules of Professional Conduct.
Also, the hotline does not answer questions that are being litigated in a
pending legal proceeding or before a grievance committee, or questions
of law. Calls to the hotline are confidential but not privileged. For a
full discussion of the Ethics Committee’s hotline guidelines, refer to the document located at the bottom of this page.
