Professional Misconduct

This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority.

  1. Probation
    issued in AZ, 2013


    Probation means an attorney did something wrong but may still practice law. The State monitors the lawyer's activities for a period of time in hopes that he or she will not repeat the behavior.

    Amanda’s comment: “This episode was a minor infraction. In which I wrote Child Protective Service an angry letter because they failed to protect children in our location. The supervisor filed a bar complaint because of the letter and the fact that I said they were harassing my client and not doing their job.”
