Disciplinary Board



The Disciplinary Board (DB) is another component of the disciplinary process. If the State Professional Responsibility Board authorizes formal charges the DB acts as the hearing or trial panel for each contested case. All contested cases (discipline and reinstatement) are heard by panels of the DB. Each trial panel consists of two lawyers and one non-lawyer member of the DB. The Supreme Court appoints the DB from lawyers and public members nominated by the OSB Board of Governors. Terms are for three years and members may serve multiple terms.

If you have questions about the Disciplinary Board, please contact Helen Hierschbiel (x361), General Counsel, or Cassandra Stich (x334), Administrative Assistant, P.O. Box 231935, 16037 SW Upper Boones Ferry Road, Tigard, OR, 97281-1935, (503) 620-0222 or 1-800-452-8260 inside Oregon.
