Professional Misconduct

This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority.

  1. Discipline with actual suspension
    issued in CA, 2010


    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.

    Patrick’s comment: “My case caused harm to no clients and occurred over 9 years ago; suspension was only 3 months and I genuinbely learned a lot from the experience which has helped me to become a better practitioner and human being. Great gifts sometimes come in crummy wrappig paper.”
