The Philadelphia Bar Association's Professional Guidance Committee provides, upon request, advice for lawyers facing or anticipating facing ethical dilemmas. Opinions are advisory only and are based upon the specific facts provided in inquiries. Opinions are not binding upon the Disciplinary Board of the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania or any other Court. They carry only such weight as an appropriate reviewing authority may choose to give it.
The most frequently requested opinions are available here now; the remaining opinions will be posted in the coming months. Please bear with us until all are posted.
For more information, to submit an issue to the committee for review or to request an opinion not yet posted, contact Paul Kazaras, Esq., the Association's Assistant Executive Director, by phone at (215) 238-6328 or via e-mail
