This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority.
Disbarment is the most serious penalty for a lawyer. If this attorney is currently practicing law, you should contact the Pennsylvania State Bar to understand the reasons for disbarment.
Censure means the attorney did something wrong but may still practice law. The State censures the lawyer in hopes that he or she will not repeat the behavior. Details of the infraction are made part of the public record.

Mr. Jokelson failed to keep us adequately informed about the status of our case and failed to explain the matters to us sufficiently. There were long periods of time in which there was no communication with us unless he needed more money. Mr. Jokelson is very disorganized lawyer. Unfortunately we did not know that he had a history of discipline for similar infractions of ethical rules until after he lost our case.

Paid attorney to handle an appeal, he dropped the appeal due to the request of public defender, never returned my money and left me an innocent person hanging.
