Professional misconduct

This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority.

  1. Public Reprimand
    issued in GA, 2014

    updated

    This means the attorney did something wrong, but the Bar 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.

    Margrett’s comment: “Incident happened in 2010 when both of my parents had cancer and I had colon surgery - dispute with client that blackballed me on web and I retaliated and mentioned her full name. The client after”
