Dykes joins First Circuit Grievance Committee

Hayward Dykes Jr., partner with Conerly, Bowman & Dykes, LLP joins the First Circuit Grievance Committee. Mr. Dykes will be serving a three year term with the grievance committee which began September 2012. This is the second partner from Conerly, Bowman & Dykes, LLP to have served on the grievance committee. Mr. J. Bruce Bowman, was the former chair for the grievance committee and ended his term August 2012.

Grievance committees are made up of volunteer members, at least one-third of whom are not lawyers. Each of Florida’s 20 judicial circuits has at least one such committee. The grievance committee reviews complaints with much the same purpose as a grand jury. That is, the committee decides, after a case is submitted to them by bar counsel, whether there is probable cause to believe a lawyer violated the professional conduct rules imposed by the Supreme Court of Florida and whether discipline against the lawyer appears to be warranted.
