Professional responsibility rules govern the ethical standards of licensed professionals such as attorneys and doctors. Such professionals may be disciplined for bad conduct, like mismanaging a case or mishandling a client's money. Ethics lawyers, also called professional responsibility lawyers, are experts in these rules and can help both professionals and the public understand if a professional’s licensing obligations have been met.
