Professional Misconduct

This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority.

  1. Suspension
    issued in FL, 2001


    Suspension means an attorney lost his or her license to practice law for a period of time. The attorney typically returns to practicing law when the suspension expires.

    Ronald’s comment: “Attorney was suspended for 90 days for neglect of cases while he was suffering from illness fourteen years ago. Attorney has successfully recovered his illness.”
