The Ethics Board advises:

1) A legislator may represent clients in criminal matters unless the Department of
      Justice, rather than a district attorney, is prosecuting the matter but the legislator
      should account for whether such representation will undermine citizen confidence
      in government;

2) A legislator may represent a client in a licensure or regulatory matter before a
      state agency only in an open hearing at which a record is maintained; and

3) Other lawyers in the legislator’s firm whose work, judgment and compensation
      are not subject to the legislator’s review may represent clients in matters before
      state agencies.
