Professional misconduct

This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority.

  1. Admonition
    issued in DC, 2004


    An admonition means an attorney did something wrong but may still practice law. The Bar gives the lawyer an admonition in hopes that he or she will not repeat the behavior.

    Thomas’s comment: “The D.C. Bar web site states that informal admonition "remains the lowest form of discipline for attorneys under the jurisdiction of the District of Columbia Court of Appeals". This incident followed settlement of an employment case in favor of a client, who later complained to bar counsel. No loss or harm was suffered by the client. Details are available from Bar Counsel.”
