Becoming a lawyer or judge can be the proudest moment in the lives of some 90,000 people who perform those jobs in Texas. But it can end up as a terrible career choice for those who violate ethics rules or break the law, as they will likely wind up getting disciplined, arrested, indicted or sent to prison.

Texas Lawyer has been documenting the troubles of the legal industry for the past three decades, and there were plenty of instances during 2018. We’ve compiled a list of the most outrageous allegations and subsequent punishments dished out over the past 12 months for what we call The 2018 Top 10 Troubled Lawyers and Judges in Texas List.
