Professional Misconduct

This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority.

  1. Suspension
    issued in CT, 2009


    This means the 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.

    Russell’s comment: “I was suspended for 30 days which ended 3.5 years ago! -- had NOTHING to do with money, my clients, or my lawyering skills. I have never been grieved, I have never filed a claim with my E&O carrier. AVVO rating system cannot distinguish between a 5 year suspension for stealing clients' funds and a 30 day suspension for a technical violation. -- Avvo won't accomodate Federal Admissions. I am admitted to the US Federal Districts of Connecticut and the Eastern District of Michigan. -- Avvo is lame.”
