Duty to Report an Attorney’s Unethical Conduct

Rule 8.3 of the Maryland Lawyers’ Rules of Professional Conduct requires that an attorney who knows that another attorney has committed an ethical violation, which “raises a substantial question as to that lawyer’s honesty, trustworthiness, or fitness”, to report the transgressing attorney to the Maryland Attorney Grievance Commission.    Complaints submitted by Stewart A. Sutton on behalf of his clients have resulted in the disbarment of several Maryland attorneys.
