Williamson County attorney reprimanded by State Bar
Posted on Wednesday, December 7th, 2011
A Williamson County attorney was rebuked by the Texas State Bar for violating confidentiality rules, specifically Rule 1.05 of the Texas Disciplinary Rules of Professional Conduct, while working as a counsel of commissioners court.
The Texas State Bar dismissed twenty-three of the twenty-four complaints filed against her. The one complaint not dismissed will not hinder her ability to practice law in Williamson County.
Complaints were filed against her after by commissioners after she attempted to remove a Williamson County judge from office. Commissioners believe she used information against the judge that she acquired from a commissioners court executive session. The attorney says she believes her confidentiality violation fit with an exception to the rule, which states an attorney can use confidential information if he or she thinks it is necessary to comply for a with order.
