Check a Lawyer's Disciplinary Record

Nearly all lawyers in Colorado act in an honest manner. But sometimes a few abuse the trust placed in them by their clients. In those instances, the Colorado Supreme Court has procedures for deciding whether a lawyer acted improperly and breached the ethical rules for lawyers (called the Colorado Rules of Professional Conduct), and whether the lawyer should be disciplined as a result

Discipline or “sanctions” affects a lawyer’s license to practice law in Colorado. Sanctions for professional misconduct by a lawyer can include:

  • Private Admonition – a non-public statement issued by the Colorado Supreme Court informing the lawyer that he or she committed misconduct.
  • Public Censure — A public statement issued by the Colorado Supreme Court informing the public that a lawyer committed misconduct.
  • Suspension — Temporary loss of a lawyer’s right to practice law in Colorado.
  • Disbarment — Permanent loss of a lawyer’s right to practice law in Colorado.
