Professional Misconduct

This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority.

  1. Discipline, probation, with no actual suspension
    issued in CA, 1998


    This sanction means the attorney had a suspension placed on hold (and ultimately removed) by complying with certain requirements.

    Sayre’s comment: “PLEASE NOTE that I did not take advantage of or betray a client in any way. I represented her in a conservatorship proceeding and obtained her release from a facility without notifying the public authorities. A copy of the facts and conclusions of law from the court documents can be viewed here. Full record available here.”
