Ethics Committee

To help each member strive to honestly conduct himself or herself in the practice of law, discharge the lawyer's duty to his or her client to the best of the lawyer's ability, and always zealously and ethically represent the citizen accused, our committee will strive to advise members on how to comply with all state, federal, and local laws, regulations, and rules while attempting to assure the accused receives a fair and impartial trial with the fewest consequences. We will have an ethics hotline for members to call if need arises for answering general questions about what a lawyer should do in a questionable area. If you're presented with an ethical dilemma, don't look for answers on social media—Facebook, for instance—or even on the TCDLA listserve. Don't hang your dirty laundry out for all to see. Call the Ethics Committee hotline, at (512) 646-2734, and leave a message. They'll get right back to you.
