Evil Esquire Bar Association
There are approximately 1.4 million attorneys actively practicing law in the United States. According to the American Bar Association’s “Survey on Lawyer Discipline Systems, 2007” over 117,500 complaints were filed during the year alleging violations of ethical rules and the law. Of these complaints approximately 4.3 percent will result in attorneys being charged with an “ethical” or other violation and only 3 percent (3,525) will result in public sanctions against the attorney. Fewer than 0.72 percent (846) will actually result in the attorney’s disbarment, a sanction generally reserved for attorneys convicted of felonies or who habitually defy ethics rules over an extended period of time.
As the foregoing statistics illustrate, if you’re a victim of an attorney’s breach of the “Rules of Professional Conduct” or the law, the odds of your obtaining justice for their misconduct are heavily stacked against you. It is for this reason EvilEsq was founded. It is our mission to promote the ethical practice and application of the law by increasing transparency regarding attorney misconduct and the failed systems regulating them.

“Changes in construction methods have caused US buildings to become perfect petri dishes for mold and bacteria to flourish when water is added. Instead of warning the public and teaching physicians that the buildings were causing illness; in 2003 the US Chamber of Commerce Institute for Legal Reform, a think-tank, and a workers comp physician trade organization mass marketed an unscientific nonsequitor to the courts to disclaim the adverse health effects to stave off liability for financial stakeholders of moldy buildings. Although publicly exposed many times over the years, the deceit lingers in US courts to this very day.” Sharon Noonan Kramer
