On June 6, 2019, the D.C. Court of Appeals appointed Ms. Sara K. Blumenthal, Margaret M. Cassidy, Esquire, and Robert L. Walker, Esquire, to serve three-year terms as members of the Board on Professional Responsibility, effective August 1, 2019.
It is such an honor to be appointed to the DC Board of Professional Responsibility. I look forward to working with my esteemed colleagues on the Board to serve both the community and the legal profession as we review and consider matters of attorney ethics.
Rule XI confers on the Board on Professional Responsibility the authority to adjudicate cases of attorney misconduct and disability and the responsibility for administering the disciplinary system. The nine–member Board is appointed by the District of Columbia Court of Appeals and includes seven attorneys and two members of the public. Board members are unpaid volunteers and are eligible to serve two three-year terms.
