Two Gilbert Attorneys Appointed as Alternate Hearing Committee Members by the D.C. Board on Professional Responsibility

Gilbert LLP announced today that two of its attorneys, Jason Rubinstein and Chris Leonardo, have been appointed as Alternate Hearing Committee Members of the District of Columbia Board on Professional Responsibility.

“Jason and Chris will be valuable members of any Hearing Committee,” said Kami Quinn, Chair of Gilbert LLP’s Executive Committee.  “They provide Gilbert clients with outstanding legal work, and both have always surpassed the high ethical standards we demand from all Gilbert attorneys.”

The Board on Professional Responsibility is appointed by The District of Columbia Court of Appeals and serves as its disciplinary arm, responsible for the adjudication of disciplinary cases and the administration of the attorney discipline system. The Hearing Committees preside over disciplinary hearings and are appointed by the Board.  Hearing Committees conduct hearings on formal charges of misconduct and contested petitions for reinstatement, limited hearings on petitions for negotiated discipline, and hearings on such other matters as the Court or Board may direct. Each Hearing Committee is composed of two attorney members and one public member.

Gilbert LLP is a Washington-based law firm specializing in litigation and strategic risk management, insurance recovery and complex dispute resolution.
