Professional Misconduct

This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority.

  1. Censure with conditions
    issued in IL, 1995

    updated

    Censure with conditions means the attorney did something wrong but may still practice law. The State places conditions on the lawyer's activities to try to prevent a reocurrence of the wrongful act. Details of the infraction are made part of the public record.

    Thomas’s comment: “Truly an unfortunate event which made me a much better and more attentive attorney. Some 18 years later, I still remember well what can happen from not communicating well and I am a far better person because of it (8-13-2013)”
