JONESBORO, Ark. – The Arkansas Supreme Court honored Jonesboro attorney Mark Rees in November with an appointment to the Supreme Court Committee on Professional Conduct.
The appointment was made on November 21, 2019. Rees Law Firm announced the news on Tuesday as the year closed out. The state agency hears public grievances and professional complaints made against attorneys operating in Arkansas.
“The Members and Staff of the Rees Law Firm believe that this is a testament to Mark’s integrity and high ethical standards in serving our clients,” Rees Law Firm published.
Arkansas Supreme Court Chief Justice Dan Kemp appointed Rees to the committee.
Members on the committee assist in enforcing the procedures of professional conduct. Two separate seven-member panels each include five attorneys – one from the State at large and one from each Congressional District. Two non-attorneys are also chosen by the State to serve on the committee.
The committee conducts hearings either at the request of the panel or a request of a respondent attorney.
