This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority.
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.
Eldridge’s comment: “unfortunately, this reprimand was made by the opposing Attorney because I would not back down from defending my client.”
