Ethics Committee

THE JK. WINTERS P.C. ETHICS COMMITTEE PURPOSE

The JK. Winters P.C. Ethics Committee was created to facilitate and protect our relationships with our clients. Except when permitted by the Michigan Rules of Professional Conduct (“MRPC”), or similar rules in other states, JK. Winters P.C. will not represent a client when a conflict of interest exists between the potential client and an existing client or former client, or any of the attorneys of our firm.  Avoiding conflicts of interest ensures that our loyalty to our clients is not compromised and the attorney-client relationship is protected. We believe that loyalty to our clients is the foundation of a strong attorney-client relationship.  Prior to taking on a new matter, we will verify that nothing stands in the way of our vigorous representation of a client.

One of the purposes of the MRPC, similar rules in other states, and JK. Winters PC  Ethics Committee (“Ethics Committee”), is to help Winters PC  lawyers avoid conflicts of interest and to protect the attorney-client relationship.

We believe that loyalty to our clients is the foundation of a strong attorney-client relationships.  Prior to taking on a new matter, we will verify that nothing stands in the way of our vigorous representation of a client.

When a question of representation arises, the Ethics Committee determines if the proposed representation will result in a conflict of interest.  Many times this process is easy; other times, more thought and evaluation is needed.  The Ethics Committee is charged with examining any situation where there is an actual conflict, a potential conflict, and even the appearance of a conflict with the attorney-client relationship.  A formal request for an Opinion is made by the attorney to the Ethics Committee.  The Ethics Committee then applies the MRPC and the relevant Ethics Opinions issued by the State Bar of Michigan, or the rules and opinions of the state where the question arises.  The Ethics Committee then issues a written Opinion on the matter, to the requesting attorney, to enable the attorney to proceed appropriately.

The direction given by the Ethics Committee can include taking on the new matter, turning down anew matter because there is a conflict with either a current or former client,or putting in place procedures and processes that ensure the sanctity of the attorney-client relationship.  In addition, not all conflicts result in the need to decline representation; after full disclosure of the potential conflict, a clients in some instances can consent to the representation and waive any conflicts.  All matters are reviewed on a case-by-case basis.

JK. Winters P.C. is committed to doing everything we can to build strong attorney-client relationships based upon trust, loyalty, and confidentiality.  The JK. Winters P.C. Ethics Committee is another example of our firm’s tradition of excellence, integrity and service.
