Ethics

This firm has extensive experience in legal ethics. James Blume was a member of the Supreme Court’s Unauthorized Practice of Law Committee from 1990-2014, was its chair from 1991-1997 and is still on its advisory committee. He has also been appointed numerous times as a Special Assistant Disciplinary Counsel by the Chief Disciplinary Counsel of the State Bar of Texas. As such, he has prosecuted attorneys for their grievable conduct. He has also been an expert witness on unauthorized practice, legal issues and lawyer fee disputes.

Shelly Skeen also has an extensive background in legal ethics, having defended attorneys on grievance matters and malpractice claims. This “front line” experience makes an invaluable resource in the legal ethics field.
