Lawyer-to-Lawyer Dispute Resolution Program | Long-standing or even some short-term personal disputes between lawyers result in clients being inadvertently caught in a tug-of-war in the legal process not necessarily arising out of their particular legal matter. These types of disputes also rob the lawyers involved of the personal satisfaction from practicing law, and inflict severe damage to the image of the legal profession as a whole. As a result, all clients and members of the profession are affected when any lawyers are distracted from their professional duties by personal conflicts and disputes between them. Nothing damages the legal profession more than when lawyers air their dirty linen in public or, worse yet, cost their clients unnecessary anxiety, expense and delay solely as a result of personal issues arising between them. These disputes involve adversarial law firm or office sharing break ups, fee disputes between co-counsel, and perceived or actual overzealous representation, dirty tricks, or professional or personal disrespect or discourtesy.
