David is a skilled and experienced family law lawyer. He is committed to serving his clients' interests. He is the lawyer I would want to be representing me if I needed one. Also, I am familiar with the circumstances of the reprimand. It concerned a firm administration issue. It was not related to David’s abilities, his honesty or integrity, and it had no impact on his clients. It in no way affects my view of him as a person or lawyer.

This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority.
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.
David’s comment: “This reprimand concerned a firm administration issue, was not related to David's abilities and honesty, and had no impact on David’s clients.”
