Professional Misconduct

This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority.

  1. Admonishment
    issued in FL, 2007

    updated

    An admonition means an attorney did something wrong but may still practice law. The Bar gives the lawyer an admonition in hopes that he or she will not repeat the behavior.

    Paul’s comment: “Technical rule violation during a case where the prosecutor was also referred for a rule violation involving his use of improper tactics. Always a Member in Good Standing with the Florida Bar. Never reprimanded, suspended, or anything of the sort. Unfortunately, AVVO fails to make this important distinction.”
