Attorney Ethics

District VIII (Middlesex County)
Barry Muller, Esq., Secretary

The Office of Attorney Ethics acts as the investigative and prosecutorial arm of the Supreme Court of New Jersey in discharging the Court's constitutional responsibility to supervise and discipline New Jersey attorneys.

Lawyers who commit unethical conduct in this state are subject to discipline by the Supreme Court. Such discipline can range from an admonition, the least serious discipline, to a reprimand, censure, suspension from practice, or permanent disbarment from practice. The attorney disciplinary process is usually begun by the filing of an Attorney Grievance form with the Secretary of one of the Supreme Court's 17 district ethics committees.  If you have Acrobat Reader, you may print an Attorney Grievance Form. Send the original and two (2) copies to the district secretary where the attorney has an office for practice.

To contact a district ethics committee Secretary click on the link at the bottom or call the tollfree Ethics/Fee Arbitration Hotline at 1-800-406-8594 (if you call the hotline be prepared to provide the five digit zip code of the attorney's address.)

Please note that in Middlesex County you must call the Secretary's office and you will be sent a form that must be filled out and returned. The Secretary's office staff will not be able to provide you with any legal advice nor will they be able to answer any questions about your specific situation.
