Public reprimand means an attorney did something wrong but may still practice law. The State gives the lawyer 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.

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.
