Professional Ethics Committee opinions
The Professional Ethics Committee of the ACBA, in order to assist the members of the association in fulfilling ethical requirements, has determined to periodically publish abstracts of its approved opinions that might have widespread application. Please note that these abstracts are only published with permission of the Inquirers, and that the opinions of the Committee are advisory only and not binding on the Disciplinary Board of the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania or on any court. It carries only such weight as a reviewing authority may choose to give it.
The Professional Ethics Committee provides a confidential telephone consultation service to members of the ACBA on questions of their own ethical conduct. To reach the Duty Officer for any given month, see www.acba.org or call the ACBA at 412-402-6600.
