What is the Ethics Hotline?
New York lawyers faced with ethical questions regarding their own prospective
conduct can reach the Ethics Hotline at (212) 382-6624. Operated by the Committee
on Professional and Judicial Ethics, the hotline is staffed by committee members
who can often answer the inquiry immediately over the phone. Otherwise, a timely
written response is sent to the caller. The Committee also publishes written
opinions on ethical issues of broad interest.
