A personal notelyndashely from Lynda:

I am an ethics lawyer to about 950 law firms in Arizona and DC including solos and firms with over 1000 lawyers.  My job is to give ethics advice to prevent malpractice and bar complaints.  I have three awesome kids, two of whom are still in college (one at ASU and one at UA), I’m married to a commercial litigator, and we currently have several cats and a dog.  Motto:  Trust your gut, tell the truth, and follow the golden rule….and try to maintain a sense of humor and perspective.

Lynda opened The Shely Firm, PC in 2003 after serving as the State Bar of Arizona’s Director of Lawyer Ethics for ten years.  Lynda provides exclusively professional responsibility advice and representation.

As the Director of Ethics Lynda answered approximately 8000 ethics calls each year and drafted dozens of written ethics advisory opinions. She also supervised the unauthorized practice of law counsel, the Fee Arbitration Program, Peer Review Committee, and served as staff counsel to the Client Protection Fund and Ethics Committee. Lynda began her legal career in 1987 as an intellectual property associate at Morgan, Lewis & Bockius in Washington, D.C.

Lynda is a frequent speaker around the country on ethics, risk management, professional liability, billing, unauthorized practice of law, legal marketing, and professionalism topics.

As a member of the State Bar of Arizona’s Ethical Rules Review Group and Multijurisdictional Task
Force, Lynda helped with the drafting of both the 2003 extensive amendments to the Arizona Rules of Professional Conduct as well as the amendments to Ethical Rule 5.5 to permit temporary practice in Arizona by out-of-state lawyers. She currently is the Chair of the State Bar’s Unauthorized Practice of Law Advisory Committee, and she serves on the State Bar’s Professionalism Task Force and
Convention Committee.

She is an adjunct professor at Phoenix School of Law, teaching Professional Responsibility and Law Office Management.
