For matters involving lawyer discipline Mr. Lerner was chosen by the Arizona Supreme Court to serve as one of several volunteer lawyers who participate in evidentiary hearings with the Presiding Disciplinary Judge and a non-lawyer member. After the evidence is presented and argument considered on the Respondent lawyer's conduct, a decision is rendered and, if warranted, the panel imposes sanctions. These sanctions may range from a reprimand, suspension, and for egregious cases disbarment. Sometimes restitution is ordered as a condition of probation. Those who serve in the role of a lawyer member of the panel bring a vast array of experience and diversity, thereby preserving the integrity of the process.
Mr. Lerner has experience on the issue of standard of care of lawyers because he has tried cases to juries on the issue of lawyer malpractice, served as an expert witness on lawyer negligence, and served as a Hearing Officer on lawyer ethics.
