During the survey period The Florida Bar saw some things remain the same in legal ethics and discipline: many, many lawyers neglected their clients, misappropriated their clients' funds or otherwise abused their clients, and a number of lawyers had sanctions imposed on them personally outside of discipline proceedings for persisting in frivolous litigation or handling litigation in a dilatory manner.
