This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority.
An admonition means an attorney did something wrong but may still practice law. The Bar gives the lawyer an admonition in hopes that he or she will not repeat the behavior.
Curran’s comment: “The reprimand was not related to a client - I actually asked the Bar for an opinion under the self reporting requirements and they issued a reprimand to me for filing a case in the wrong venue, not dishonesty. It was not about a client, fees, or a grievance. The opinion states that I did not mislead anyone, just that it “lacks candor” to the Court since there are specific rules on venue. The client related to the case was proud of me for fighting his battle.”

Mr. Porto has helped me in a business tax issue and is currently advising me and my accountant on a corporate tax issue. Curran is very competent and really represents his clients in a very complex arena.

Curran handled my bankruptcy case very efficiently. He was very knowledgeable and his staff was very polite and helpful. I highly recommend this attorney and law firm.

In a state with so many attorneys to choose from it is easy to find an attorney that can handle a real estate matter. It is not so easy to find one that can handle the difficult matters that take a lot of thought and thinking out of the box. Attorney Porto is brilliant when it comes to cases that need that extra detail and creative thought. He has handled several files for me and each time I have been extremely happy with the outcome.
