your lawyer and the other lawyers and personnel in your lawyer’s office.

2. You are entitled to an attorney capable of handling your legal matter
competently and diligently, in accordance with the highest standards of the
profession. If you are not satisfied with how your matter is being handled, you
have the right to withdraw from the attorney-client relationship at any time
(court approval may be required in some matters and your attorney may have a
claim against you for the value of services rendered to you up to the point of
discharge).

3. You are entitled to your lawyer’s independent professional judgment and
undivided loyalty uncompromised by conflicts of interest.

at the outset how the fee will be computed and the manner and frequency of
billing. You are entitled to request and receive a written itemized bill from your
attorney at reasonable intervals. You may refuse to enter into any fee
arrangement that you find unsatisfactory. In the event of a fee dispute, you may
have the right to seek arbitration; your attorney will provide you with the
necessary information regarding arbitration in the event of a fee dispute, or
upon your request.

5. You are entitled to have your questions and concerns addressed in a prompt
manner and to have your telephone calls returned promptly.

6. You are entitled to be kept informed as to the status of your matter and to
request and receive copies of papers. You are entitled to sufficient information
to allow you to participate meaningfully in the development of your matter.

7. You are entitled to have your legitimate objectives respected by your attorney,
including whether or not to settle your matter (court approval of a settlement is
required in some matters).

8. You have the right to privacy in your dealings with your lawyer and to have your
secrets and confidences preserved to the extent permitted by law.

9. You are entitled to have your attorney conduct himself or herself ethically in
accordance with the Code of Professional Responsibility.
