Advice on Ethical Questions

The court does not provide advisory opinions on ethical questions.

Attorneys may seek advice from the professional ethics committee of their local bar association or may seek advice from the Committee on Professional Ethics of the New York State Bar Association. Inquiries may be sent to the latter committee by mail addressed to it at One Elk Street, Albany, NY 12207, by fax to (518) 487-5694, or by e-mail to ethics@nysba.org. All inquiries should include the inquirer’s name, mailing address, telephone, and fax number.

When faced with a question of professional ethics, practitioners should first consult the Rules of Professional Conduct (22 NYCRR part 1200) and relevant ethics opinions. The ethics opinions of the New York State Bar Association’s Committee on Professional Ethics may be accessed on the Association’s website.
