A Note about the "Reprimand."  Integrity is extremely important to me.  I accepted a reprimand for refusing to abandon my ethical obligation to my clients in a superfund case.  Specifically, in connection with a massive superfund case in which our firm represented the homeowners, I refused to drop the case when our Governor told me that I should  if I knew what was good for my practice - That was years before the Governor went to prison.   As a result of my representation of those clients I  was accused of a number of things including advising a client about a judge's rulings in prior published decisions. Under the Alfred doctrine, I admitted advising my clients of those decisions, but denied any misconduct. The judge in question had dismissed the case in which our firm was representing the homeowners association.  A dismissal that was reversed by our Supreme Court on appeal.

Professional Misconduct

This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority.

  1. Reprimand
    issued in CT, 2007

    updated

    This means the attorney did something wrong, but the State did not suspend the lawyer. Typically in this case the lawyer's poor behavior is exposed to the public in hopes that he or she will not repeat the behavior.

    Myles’s comment: “I was accused of advising a client about a judge's rulings in prior published decisions. Under the Alfred doctrine, I admitted advising my clients of those decisions, but denied any misconduct. The judge in question dismissed a case in which our firm represented 80 families on a superfund site - A dismissal that was reversed by our Supreme Court on appeal.”
