On the adequacy of attorney discipline in Virginia

This letter to the editor of the Washington Post says the lawyer discipline system in Virginia is no good, concluding that "Virginia lawyers treat discipline and client protection as poor stepchildren."

The letter was in response to this editorial from May 11, another in the Post's continuing series of criticisms of the handling particularly of the representation of poor criminal defendants in Virginia state courts.
