This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority.
A court reprimand is an order from the Superior Court after it has found that an attorney has engaged in ethical misconduct. If an attorney receives more than 3 reprimands in 5 years, a presentment must be filed against the attorney so the Superior Court can decide if more serious discipline should be ordered.

At this time I am contacting the BAR association to find out how to make a formal complaint aginst this attorney who is supposed to be acting on the best interest of children. He acted unprofessional from day one when he did not contact his client himself he had the opposing parent contact him after her meeting. This makes a parent feel there is bias. He then had appt. with the mother but canceled the appt. with the father. Within 3 mintues the mother texts the father "what a great father you are, can't even make your appt". Why and how would she have this information? Then he askeds the child involved 2 questions and decides on a plan himself, which does not include the basic right fo a paretn "Right of First Refusal".. he charged 1,000 and did not do his job. when informed of another pending court date he rudely tells the father he hasn't paid an penny and its the fathers job to prove he did. upon investigation of cashed checks, he discovers Brian himself cashed 350.00 in checks. After a letter sent to Brian discussing these important concerns he cowardly informs THE MOTHER that he is off the case. Never calls to apologize or make things right BUT cashes the additional 200.00 sent with the letter. You have a lot to learn Mr Chizinski. This is gross unprofessionalism. If you are assigned this attorney, ask for another. If you have had a bad experience with this attorney please come forward, I will be looking for others. If nothing is said this will happen to others. I cannot sleep at night sometimes thinking of the poor parents he may have done similiar things to. Court/custody cases are so stressful to begin with. WHO CAN WE TRUST AND TURN TO??
