Professional Misconduct

This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority.

  1. Public Reprimand
    issued in TX, 2002


    Public reprimand means an attorney did something wrong but may still practice law. The State gives the lawyer a public reprimand in hopes that he or she will not repeat the behavior. Details of the infraction are made part of the public record.

    Janet’s comment: “This action was brought against me after I filed suit for a couple against the district judge's wife for bringing a foreclosure case against them without proper notification to them and the first lienholder. It was brought for retaliation. What I was charged with was taking a client's boat as payment for her divorce after the ex-husband had constructively abandoned it and never picked it up. I returned the $600 I got for the boat and the boat itself.”
