This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority.
When an attorney is censured it means he or she did something wrong but may still practice law. 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.
James’s comment: “Unfortunately as an attorney, the disclosure of case specifics is prohibited. This Civil Litigation case went awry in large part because of the client's own failures. The client then blamed the lawyer. There were other factors that contributed as well, including interference by another attorney on behalf of the client. This Lawyer being faced with huge expenses and very valuable time to defend the allegations, accepted the Board's offer of settlement and consented to a public censure.”

Mr Purple was on my Divorce case and needless to say I had to find another Lawyer to finish my case. He started out telling me one thing but then ended up screwing me in the end. When my case when in for deposition I lost costody of my children and more then 50% of settlement, I didnt get allomony and lost my portion of marrital residence! He told me serveral times he would drop my case and not go to court for me if I didnt agree to the proposed agreement. He allowed apposing to berade and threten me. When I was told of papers being filed that I requested I found out later they never were. He allows his personal feelings to get in the way. I would not reccomend him for Family Law what so ever! He has seriously hurt my family and made my divorce much worse!
