Attorney Richard Tendler recently completed serving a three-year term as a member of the 15th Judicial Circuit Grievance Committee for The Florida Bar and a one-year term as the Chair of the committee. The committee is responsible for inquiring into alleged ethical misconduct by members of The Florida Bar.
Mr. Tendler, a Baton Raton criminal defense lawyer, was appointed to serve on the committee from 2009 through 2012, and he held the position of Chair from 2011 through 2012. Anyone serving on the committee is required to be nominated and must display the highest level of ethical standards, both before and during his or her term.
When reviewing an attorney’s alleged misconduct, the members of the Grievance Committee are required to determine whether the activity in question violated the rules regulating The Florida Bar and whether a complaint should be filed against the attorney so disciplinary actions can be taken.
