Legal Ethics & Professional Responsibility
Experience. Reputation. Result.
“Kaylin has a passion for attorney professional responsibility. I received an investigation letter from the Disciplinary Committee and did not know how to respond. I turned to Kaylin and I’m very glad I did. Kaylin presented a masterful response to the Disciplinary Committee and clearly managed my expectations and fears. Kaylin not only stayed in contact with the Disciplinary Committee to expedite review but also kept me informed every step of the way. I was thrilled to hear that, based on Kaylin’s response alone, the Committee found there was no basis for taking action and closed the matter. It was a stressful situation but Kaylin’s experience working with the Disciplinary Committee and knowledge of the practice area put me at ease. Thank you Kaylin!”
