Professional misconduct

This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority in 1998.

Investigative Panel Reprimand issued in GA, 1998
updated on 02/08/2010

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 public in hopes that he or she will not repeat the behavior.
