The press coverage of the complaints is quite frank - that the complaints are seeking to take away from Mr. Jose Baez the gains for his reputation as an attorney that he earned by winning a murder trial for his client.
At least one complaint was in the form of an online petition endorsed by 584 people and signed
Apparently, the biggest reason for the complaint was that the criminal defense attorney vigorously did his job for his client, and that the client was acquitted - by a jury of her peers, after a long trial.
Had Casey Anthony been convicted, there would have been no complaints.
The Florida Bar that, I am sure, tosses such complaints against powerful and connected attorneys left and right, took this complaint for investigation.
Because "a nobody" took a case nobody else wanted, won it and became famous.
Politically connected attorneys in the Florida Bar could not have that.
I wonder if Florida Bar actually inspired, instigated or encouraged these complaints to be filed against attorney Baez.
It all boils down to one big question - why do we have attorney discipline?
To provide the public with competent counsel, including criminal defense counsel - or to destroy such competent counsel because he did his job too well and now more clients want his services?
