Professional Misconduct

This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority.

  1. Suspension stayed, probation
    issued in OR, 2015

    updated

    This means the attorney did something wrong and could have temporarily lost his or her license to practice law. Instead the Hearing Board placed the suspension on hold, monitoring the attorney’s behavior for a period of time.

  2. Suspension - disciplinary
    issued in OR, 2013

    updated

    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.

    Mark’s comment: “I was hired to do an "Uncontested" divorce, and given misinformation. 2-3 years later the client still was uncooperative then demanded all his money back. I refused. I am held to a higher standard and understand that. I should have terminated the relationship when I discovered he did have children and a house he failed to tell me about.”
