Newly Enhanced Web Site Better Educates Attorneys on the Rules of Professional Conduct

(Lemoyne, Pa.) - The Disciplinary Board of the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania, an independent agency, announces the launch of its newly redesigned, user-friendly Web site, www.padb.us. The new design features easier navigation so both attorneys and consumers are able to efficiently access information.

"The purpose of our redesigned Web site is to make information about the Disciplinary Board and the Rules of Professional Conduct more easily accessible to Pennsylvania attorneys and consumers," Robert Saidis, chair of the Disciplinary Board Communication Committee said. "It is part of our overall goal to make our communications practices among the best in the nation."

The site features two sections - one designed specifically for attorneys and one designed for consumers.

The attorney section is designed to answer attorneys' frequently asked questions (FAQ's) and provide information regarding registration, reinstatement, rule changes and updates, news related items, attorney ethics violations and summary case digests. Attorneys may also register for the board's monthly attorney e-newsletter through the Web site.

The consumer's side of the site offers a simple understanding of how the Disciplinary Board works and its responsibilities. Should a consumer want to report a potential ethics violation of an attorney or be interested in finding the status of an attorney, the Web site provides easy instructions on how to do so.

The Disciplinary Board's goals are to protect the general public, maintain a high standard of integrity in the legal profession, and safeguard the reputation of the courts of Pennsylvania. The Disciplinary Board was created by the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania to review conduct and assure compliance by all attorneys to the Pennsylvania Rules of Professional Conduct.
