Public reprimand means the attorney did something wrong but may still practice law. The Bar warns the lawyer in hopes that he or she will not repeat the behavior. Details of the infraction are made part of the public record.
Timothy's comment:“This was a tax issue that occurred during the recession which has been 100% corrected. No clients were affected.”
