This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority.
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)”
