Maintaining the integrity and ideals of the legal profession is a key realm of responsibility for the HCBA.
HCBA staff and volunteers work together to support the well-deserved national reputation of our local lawyers as standard bearers of ethics and service.
The 4th District Ethics Committee, operated by HCBA volunteers and staff, investigates and provides recommendations to the Office of Lawyers' Professional Responsibility regarding cases involving the code of ethics attorneys pledge to adhere to.

The Professionalism Section also presents annual awards to attorneys and judges, recognizing them for their ethics, impartiality, collegiality, and professionalism.
