Provided Expert Analysis Leading to Exoneration of AmLaw 100 White-Collar Attorney Facing Disciplinary Proceedings
A leading white-collar practitioner at an AmLaw 100 firm faced potential disciplinary actions based on allegations by a former client in a high-profile federal prosecution. The AmLaw 100 firm contacted SouthBank Legal to provide expert analysis and testimony supporting the actions of its attorney. SouthBank Legal conducted an extensive analysis of federal sentencing law, plea-bargaining practices, the attorney’s actions, and the factual record to demonstrate that the attorney’s representation had been appropriate and consistent with ethical guidelines and constitutional guidance. Based on this analysis, the disciplinary authorities rejected the former client’s arguments and completely exonerated the defense attorney.
