I recently listened to a panel of bankruptcy judges from across the country give their “pet peeves” at an event held for Fellows in the American College of Bankruptcy. The College is an honorary association of bankruptcy and insolvency professionals, invited to join based on exhibiting the highest standards of professionalism and service to the profession and the public.
The judges reminded those attorneys and financial professionals in attendance that our reputations and our credibility are what makes clients choose one professional over another. The judges reminded that each lawyer’s reputation includes the relationships, reputation and credibility with the court itself, not just in the community. Full candor with a court is part of all lawyers’ ethical obligations. Every attorney and every employee of DLG takes seriously our obligations to our clients and the legal system. Our values include acting with integrity and candor to the court and all people we deal with on a day to day basis.
