1 Citation found

In 2007 this lawyer was disciplined for professional misconduct by the state of Maryland.

Citation type: Reprimand

Reprimand means the attorney did something wrong but may still practice law. The State warns the lawyer in hopes that he or she will not repeat the behavior. Details of the infraction are made part of the public record.

Jonathan’s comment: The entire matter involved not obtaining a guilty ,criminal clients conflict waiver in writing. The conflict was waived orally ,but not signed off on in writing as required.
