Ron Herman Named Chair of 15th Circuit Bar Grievance Committee

Ron Herman Named Chair of 15th Circuit Bar Grievance Committee

(May 24, 2019) West Palm Beach, FL

West Palm Beach Criminal Defense Attorney Ron Herman

After serving as a committee member on the Fifteenth Circuit Grievance Committee (“A”) of the Florida Bar, attorney Ron D. Herman has recently been named its Chair. The Grievance Committee is tasked with reviewing cases to determine if there is probable cause that a lawyer violated the Rules Regulating The Florida Bar.

Grievance committee investigations are similar to grand jury proceeding, and are comprised of lawyers and non-lawyers. Each of Florida’s 20 judicial circuits has at least one grievance committee. The committee members thoroughly investigate possible lawyer misconduct, which investigation can take several months and could include testimony from the accused lawyer.  Under the Chair’s leadership, Committee members are tasked with making important recommendations about whether and to what extent to impose disciplinary action.  If the Committee finds probable cause to believe that an attorney should be disciplined, the case proceeds beyond the Committee, with the Florida Supreme Court having final authority on the discipline. 

Please join us in congratulating Ron on his appointment as Chair of this prestigious committee.  He is proud to serve and appreciates the opportunity to dedicate his time to this crucial work.
