AVVO RATING 8.1 (Excellent)

Professional misconduct

This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority in 1991.

Suspension issued in WV, 1991
updated on 08/24/2016

This means the attorney lost his or her license to practice law for a period of time. The attorney typically returns to practicing law when the suspension expires.

Harvey's comment: “Because of an issue with substance abuse thirty five years ago I accepted a four month suspension of my license and was then automatically reinstated. In spite of this blemish, my career over the last thirty years has been above reproach and dedicated to the service of our clients and my community.”
