Do You Trust the State Bar?

From the State Bar of Texas, contact information for a young Houston criminal-defense lawyer:

Yes, the State Bar in fact says that this lawyer is employed by a Texas prison inmate (she is not), and gives that inmate’s prison address as the lawyer’s address (it is not). This is on the State Bar’s lawyer-search site, where people can (theoretically) go to find reliable contact information for any Texas lawyer. I wonder how much of the lawyer’s mail Mr. Tarvin has received.

Meanwhile, the same State Bar of Texas is struggling to persuade you that the amendments to the Disciplinary Rules are in the best interest of your clients and you. Unfortunately for the State Bar, ethos is important.
