Professional misconduct

This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority.

  1. Public Reprimand
    issued in MA, 2002


    Public reprimand means that an attorney did something wrong, but may still practice law. The attorney was given a public reprimand in hopes that he or she will not repeat the behavior. Details of the infraction are made part of the public record.

    Joel’s comment: “My law firm took on a case where there was a conflict unbeknownst to us. No benefit was derived by the firm by doing so. Since 2002, a new conflict checking system has been implemented.”
