Aggressive Top Los Angeles Personal Injury & Car Accident Attorney

Distinguished Honor – Howard C. Kornberg, appointed by the President of the California state bar Commission to Revise Rules of Professional Conduct for all attorneys in The State of California

Attorney Howard C. Kornberg has been appointed to serve on a California State Bar Commission that will review and revise the ethics and rules of professional conduct that guide the way lawyers must ethically and professionally work with their clients. Mr. Kornberg considers it an honor to be selected for this committee, that is working at the request of the California Supreme Court to help shape the future of the State Bar's rules of professional conduct. This commission is especially notable because the California State Bar is the only state in the nation that does not adopt its rules of professional conduct for members directly from the American Bar Association Model Rules of Professional Conduct.

Mr. Kornberg’s selection to the committee was based on his reputation for the highest level of professional conduct as well as the respect offered him by fellow members of the State Bar. This is evidenced by the fact that Mr. Kornberg has held the distinction of being an AV Pre-Eminent Trial Attorney since 1997. This is the top peer recognition title awarded by Martindale and Hubbell attorney rating organization. This rating, given to less than 1 percent of U.S. attorneys, recognizes both exceptional trial skills and dedication to high ethical standards.

Mr. Kornberg, along with 17 other esteemed attorneys from the state of California, will serve on the Committee . The Commission be chaired by the Honorable Justice Lee Edmon, Presiding Judge of The California Supreme Court with assistance from Co-Vice-Chairs Jeffrey Bleich and Dean Zipser. This State Bar Commission will also receive input and guidance from six non-voting advisers. These advisers are knowledgeable judges, law professors and members of the state bar, including a liaison from the California Supreme Court.

During this appointment, the Commission will study the current California Rules of Professional Conduct and recommend comprehensive amendments to strengthen and streamline them. These rules of professionalism serve a very important function for the state bar commission: ensuring public protection from unscrupulous or well-meaning but misguided legal counsel. Both substantive and policy issues will be considered by the committee. The current rules have not been revised since 1987.

This work is scheduled to be completed over the next two years, with all recommendations for amendments being made before March 31, 2017. Once the commission has proposed the changes, they must be submitted for public comment and adopted by the State Bar Board of Trustees. The final step before they are put into effect requires approval from the California Supreme Court.

Since he was admitted to the California State Bar in 1979, Mr. Kornberg has worked to protect individuals and consumer groups against damage done by negligent individuals, large corporations, and insurance companies. He has helped thousands of clients overcome the physically, mentally, and emotionally disabling injuries they have suffered as a result of negligent conduct. His track record shows that he has won 99 percent of cases for his clients, helping them gain peace of mind and financial security, as well as return to a better quality of life. Mr. Kornberg is also well known throughout the community thanks to his work with a number of non-profit organizations and charities, and his work on several committees at Cedars-Sinai Hospital, including the Board of Directors Committee for continuous Quality of Care Improvement at Cedars-Sinai Hospital.
