Professional Misconduct

This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority.

  1. Suspension
    issued in FL, 2011

    updated

    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.

    Elias’s comment: “None of my Client's rights and remedies were jeopardized by my actions or non-actions in this matter. It was prudent for me to accept a disciplinary action and resolve the matter with the Florida Bar so that I can continue to serve my Clients and take care of my family.”

  2. Public Reprimand
    issued in FL, 2007

    updated

    Public reprimand means the attorney did something wrong but may still practice law. The Bar 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.

    Elias’s comment: “None of my Client's rights and remedies were jeopardized by my actions or non-actions in this matter. It was prudent for me to accept a disciplinary action and resolve the matter with the Florida Bar so that I can continue to serve my Clients and take care of my family rather than keep this matter open for years to come. The Florida Bar sometimes takes 6 years to file a case.”
