I have practiced law since 1986 in Missouri. My discipline concerned someone taking something from a file in 1999, but was not found out about until 2004. When I found out this information, I clearly was wrong in believing it to be covered by a court order from California, thinking the information was told to me in attorney-client privilege.
Prior to 2006 I had the highest rating an attorneyt can have, AV+. My discipline in Colorado was based upon recipriocity, and is unrelated to anything done wrong in Colorado.
The majority of my practice is based on referrals form other lawyers who know my skills and understand I mad a mistake in the past , which had nothing to do with my capabilities as an attorney,
If given the chance, you will find me to be very straight-forward and understand how to evaulate, prepare, and try medical malpractice cases, and litigation in general.

|MO||On probation by Court order||1986||08/11/2015|
This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority.
After being disbarred, a former attorney may apply for reinstatement. He or she must comply with all readmission requirements from the Missouri Office of Chief Disciplinary Counsel.
This means a lawyer can no longer practice in another state. The state bar of Texas agrees that the lawyer's wrongful acts were serious, and has also taken away his or her license to practice in Colorado.
Josh’s comment: “The Colorado discipline was based in Missouri. I have been reinstated in Missouri for over a year, and see no reason to get reinstated in CO since I am not planning on retiring there. I am in good standing in Missouri.”
Disbarment is the most serious penalty for a lawyer. If this attorney is currently practicing law, you should contact the Missouri Office of Chief Disciplinary Counsel to understand the reasons for disbarment.
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.
