Fall 1999


The year 1999 saw a number of changes and developments in Florida professional responsibility law. This article surveys these developments by reviewing: 1) relevant reported cases; 2) ethics opinions; 3) rules changes; and 4) disciplinary actions affecting lawyers and the practice of law in the Sunshine State. These authorities are examined in the context of the various relationships upon which a lawyer's professional life is built and within which the lawyer typically operates.
