Professional misconduct

This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority.

  1. Public Reprimand
    issued in FL, 2004


    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.

    Albert’s comment: “This matter involved a letter of advertising only. There are no disciplinary actions either before or after this incident.”
