Professional misconduct

This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority.

  1. Review Panel Reprimand
    issued in GA, 2015


    This means the attorney did something wrong, but the Bar did not suspend the lawyer. Typically in this case the lawyer's poor behavior is exposed to the pubic in hopes that he or she will not repeat the behavior.
