Thanks to the following bloggers, and especially to our out-of-state colleagues, for weighing in on the State Bar of Texas's attempts to amend the Disciplinary Rules and efforts to do away with flat fees:

Please email me. Paul is kicking butt. Where are the rest of the Texas criminal-defense blawgers? Guest? Matlock? Floyd? Martinez? Breston? Flood? Spencer? Skinner? Barnett? Maselli? That's right, boys (and girl), I'm callin' you out. It's just about time to rework the blogroll, and I'm looking for an excuse.)

Meanwhile, there have been blog posts in favor of the amendments:State Bar of Texas: Referendum 2011: Q&A with Tom Watkins : State Bar of Texas BlogState Bar of Texas: Referendum 2011: Clarifying the Issues : State Bar of Texas Blog(I detect a pattern here.)

And one possible troll, who seems to think that the problem with the rules is that they provide too much protection to clients and not enough to lawyers (it's not):
