In two contexts, lawyers and bar applicants worry about hiring an ethics lawyer. In moral character applications, applicants are often concerned that having a lawyer involved makes it look like they are hiding something. In discipline matters, lawyers express concern that hiring counsel makes them look like they committed misconduct. In truth, having a lawyer’s expertise far outweighs any image of guilt that may be created by hiring counsel. In this episode, Megan unpacks the question of “will hiring an ethics lawyer hurt me?” in both the moral character application and discipline contexts.
