  7. (B) A member may, but is not required to, reveal confidential information relating to the representation of a client to the extent that the member reasonably believes the disclosure is necessary to prevent a criminal act that the member reasonably believes is likely to result in death of, or substantial bodily harm to, an individual.

  11. (1) make a good faith effort to persuade the client: (I) not to commit or to continue the criminal act or (ii) to pursue a course of conduct that will prevent the threatened death or substantial bodily harm; or do both (I) and (ii); and

  41. California Attorney Guidelines of Civility and Professionalism
  43. These voluntary Guidelines foster a level of civility and professionalism that exceed the minimum requirements of the mandated Rules of Professional Conduct as the best practices of civility in the practice of law in California. The Guidelines are not intended to supplant these or any other rules or laws that govern attorney conduct. Since the Guidelines are not mandatory rules of professional conduct, nor rules of practice, nor standards of care, they are not
  44. to be used as an independent basis for disciplinary charges by the State Bar or claims of professional negligence.
  46. SECTION 4
  49. An attorney’s communications about the legal system should at all times reflect civility,
  50. professional integrity, personal dignity, and respect for the legal system. An attorney should not
  51. engage in conduct that is unbecoming a member of the Bar and an officer of the court. For example, in communications about the legal system and with adversaries:  
  52. a.
  53. An attorney’s conduct should be consistent with high respect and esteem for the civil
  54. and criminal justice systems.
  55. b.
  56. This standard does not prohibit an attorney’s good faith, factually based expressions of
  57. dissent or criticism made in public or private discussions for the purpose of improving
  58. the legal system or profession, or addressing perceived inadequacies.
  59. c.
  60. An attorney should not disparage the intelligence, integrity, ethics, morals or behavior
  61. of the court or other counsel, parties or participants when those characteristics are not
  62. at issue.
  63. d.
  64. An attorney should not disparage another’s race, color, religion, gender, national
  65. origin, ancestry, age, disability or sexual orientation.

  74. occurred or attribute to an opposing counsel a position not taken.
  75. h.
  76. An attorney should agree to reasonable requests in the interests of efficiency and
  77. economy, including agreeing to a waiver of procedural formalities where appropriate.

  83. 2.
  84. A letter to the court, with a copy to opposing counsel.
  85. Nothing above shall be construed as discouraging the reporting of conduct that fails to
  86. comply with the Rules of Professional Conduct.
