Professional misconduct

This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority in 2015.

Reprimanded issued in NJ, 2015
updated on 10/08/2015

This means the attorney did something wrong, but the Bar did not suspend the lawyer. Typically in this case the lawyer's poor behavior is exposed to the public in hopes that he or she will not repeat the behavior.
