Professional Misconduct

This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority.

  1. Censure
    issued in NJ, 2013


    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.

    Ernest’s comment: “No one is perfect, not even lawyers. Please review the entire facts of the matter. I've accepted my censorship and am today a better lawyer for it. I am ethical and honest, I am a real down to earth person.”
