Houston, Texas 77057
All attorneys in the State of Texas
The State Bar Grievance Process
Ten years ago, Dawn Miller, the current Chief Disciplinary Counsel for
the State Bar, filed a disciplinary petition against me in which all the
grievances were past the statute of limitations.
The lawsuit was dismissed with prejudice.
However, the net result was that a permanent public reprimand was placed
in the public record and my good name as an attorney was forever disparaged.
There is no recourse at law for these bad acts per Rule 15.11, Texas
Rules of Disciplinary Procedure. I
told Dawn Miller in 1993, that if she ever came after me again, I would have her
fired, disbarred and the State Bar grievance process shut down.
Three years ago, Ms. Miller, decided that she would process another
frivolous grievance against me and I began to lay the foundation to make good on
The battle has been ongoing for three years now and is recorded on my web
page at www.johnworldpeace.com. (See
the WorldPeace v. State Bar of Texas link at the bottom of the page.)
There you will find all the answers to your questions about what is wrong
with the State Bar grievance process and a first hand look at how the process is
stacked against attorneys in this state. You
will see how the draconian process is imposed on attorneys by the Commission for
Lawyer Discipline who, due to the virtual absolute immunity of its misguided
personnel, intimidates and harasses many good attorneys into accepting
3) The grievance
process is defective and corrupt and cannot be reconciled with the significant
attorney malpractice law in this state. These
two bodies of law must be reconciled. The
low threshold for a grievance puts every attorney in this state at the mercy of
any disgruntled client. An attorney
can be disbarred for a single violation of the TDRPC.
4) Please forward
this letter by fax or email to every attorney you can so that the grievance
process can be restructured to create a just and fair system as opposed to the
Inquisition mentality that presently exists.
The Texas Rules
of Disciplinary Procedure is presently under review.
Now is the time to act. I
have put my license on the line to stop the abuse.
The least you can do is to email the Supreme Court with your comments.
The contact info is on my web page. Remember,
the license you save, may be your own.
How can we manifest peace on earth if we do not include everyone (all races, all nations, all religions, both sexes) in our vision of Peace?
