Professional Misconduct

This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority.

  1. Reciprocal Discipline
    issued in FL, 2011


    This means that the attorney's misconduct in another state also violates the rules for practicing law in Florida.

    Ralph’s comment: “Bookkeeping error by office manager during change of banks caused three small checks to bounce at United States Patent and Trademark Office which triggered a probation period to ensure this was a one time error. No time lost practicing law.”

  2. Suspension Stayed placed on Probation
    issued in CO, 2010


    Suspension stayed means the attorney has been disciplined, but that the suspension is placed on hold (and ultimately removed) if the attorney complies with probation requirements.

    Ralph’s comment: “Colorado and Florida States all copied the USPTO probation and required taking a law practice management one day course.”
