Volunteers in Attorney Ethics System Conclude Terms of Service

August 25, 2011 – Press Releases
The New Jersey Supreme Court issued certificates thanking 127 volunteers concluding four-year terms on the state's 18 district ethics committees (DECs).

Fox's Eric S. Solotoff , chair of the District XB (Morris & Sussex Counties) ethics committee since 2007was among the volunteers recognized.

The district ethics committees investigate and prosecute ethics cases involving New Jersey attorneys. The committees are made up of attorneys and public members.

“Because of your selfless and untiring contribution of time and talent in the performance of your duties, the Judiciary, the legal profession and the citizens of New Jersey are assured a higher degree of accountability, legal competence and ethical conduct from those who serve the public in the practice of law,” the certificate reads in part.

Attorney members investigate and, if necessary, prosecute grievances docketed with the committee.
