Back in February 2003, when MyShingle was still in its infancy, I wrote this blockbuster post, entitled The Bar’s Dirty Little Not So Secret Secret, which offers some powerful evidence to demonstrate that solo and small firm lawyers are the targets of disciplinary actions far more than our large firm counterparts. Apparently, the disparity between large and small firm treatment remains an issue four years later; it was the topic of a bar panel discussion at last week’s ABA conference, with some great follow up commentary here at Susan Cartier Liebel’sHow to Build A Solo Practice blog.
Take a look at my earlier post which summarizes my own reaction to the panel discussion better than I’m able to do at the moment.
