This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority.
This sanction means the 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.
This means that the attorney's misconduct in another state, or jurisdiction, also violated the rules for practicing law in Illinois.
This sanction means the attorney did something wrong but may still practice law. The Bar placed conditions on the lawyer's activities to try to prevent a recurrence of the wrongful act.
