Drug or Alcohol Issues
Representation from a Florida Bar Defense Attorney in Miami
Substance abuse issues manifest in several ways, often in tandem with problematic
conduct that could result in discipline or preclude admission to the Bar.
For those lawyers, judges and Bar applicants who face issues related to
alcohol or drugs, it is essential to have representation by a lawyer skilled,
knowledgeable and experienced in Bar, Judicial and Bar Application matters.
At Rothman & Associates, P.A., Florida bar defense lawyer David Rothman
has what it takes to get the job done. Since opening our firm more than
35 years ago, we always have put the client first, and we built a name
that will well serve Bar, Judicial and Bar applicant clients. When a Bar,
JQC or Bar application issue arises, we know the appropriate measures
to take to effectively address the matter.
What to Do if a Complaint Has Been Filed?
Drug or alcohol abuse, also called substance abuse, describes anyone who
is using substances, including prescription drugs, beyond their expected
use or who may have become addicted. In Florida, there are established
protocols put in place to address this specific problem. We know what
to do in these cases.
We offer legal assistance at all stages in JQC, Florida Bar, and Florida
Board of Bar Examiners matters for the following:
- Ethical violation allegations, including those related to substance abuse issues
- Questions of character and fitness
- Defense in state or federal cases where ethical accusations have been made
There is a “right” way to address a matter related to a substance
abuse issue. If mishandled, the result can be devastating. The Bar, the
JQC and the Board of Bar Examiners take these matters very seriously.
You should, too. Let us help you navigate these treacherous waters.
