In considering the appropriate sanction for violations of the Rules of Professional Conduct, the Supreme Court of Arizona uses the American Bar Association's Standards for Imposing Lawyer Sanctions
and a review of past cases involving similar misconduct.
The Disciplinary Cases Matrix includes all disciplinary decisions of the Supreme Court of Arizona, except reciprocal cases, consents to disbarment, transfers to disability/inactive status and reinstatement cases, from 1986 to present. For the years 1981-1985 only suspension and disbarment cases are listed.

Beginning January 1, 2011 all formal attorney discipline cases are being processed through the office of the Presiding Disciplinary Judge.
