This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority.
Suspension means an attorney will lose his or her license to practice law for a period of time. When a suspension is stayed and the attorney is given probation, the State monitors the attorney's activities for a time. If the probation period is uneventful, the attorney returns to practice when it expires.
Michael’s comment: “I did mishandle funds in my escrow account, which I voluntarily disclosed to the authorities. As a result of my many years of practice with no such problems ever before, I received a "stayed suspension" - like probation - and I continue to practice during the stayed suspension. Everyone makes mistakes, and I have learned from mine. I now keep much better records - perfect records - of my escrow account.”

A person purchased our mortgage and we were being overcharge, a lot. Michael not only help us figure this out and was finally able to make the person give us a payoff number. We were able to take that to the bank and refinance with a real bank. We would still be under the person thumb and struggling to pay the higher mortgage if Michael had not done such a fantastic job! I really can not say thank you enough. He was excellent!!!
