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.
Temporary suspension means an attorney lost his or her license to practice during a disciplinary investigation. The suspension typically expires when the investigation is resolved.

I met with Mr. Rasberry to discuss my pending divorce, we went over everything and I liked what he had to tell me. Mr. Rasberry was the best ......I was referred to his office by a friend that hired him for her divorce. He kept me well informed, was my guide, and wonderful council thru this terrible ordeal. I couldn't ask for better. If you are looking for someone to stand by you, and not back down, Johnny Rasberry is your man. Think Bruce Lee in a suit...

Mr. Raspberry is extremely hard to get in touch with. I met with him at his office for my first initial visit and after that I could hardly get a hold of him. Instead of mailing my divorce papers off he emailed them to my ex-wife and I ended up having to print them off and mailing them by certified mail myself. After he got the paperwork back it took him 3 weeks to get them to me for me to sign them and get them notarized. After I got them signed and notarized I contacted him so that he could file them. He told me he would call me so we could meet on my break. I called and he didn't answer. I have sent text messages and left voice mails and he still hasn't returned my phone call. Right after I called him from my phone and he didn't answer I called him from my friend's phone and he answered on the first ring. I now have to take off work to go and file my own divorce papers. If I would have known that I would have to do all of this myself I would have just did it myself from the beginning and saved $500.
After I posted this review Mr. Raspberry contacted me stating that he was ready to file the paperwork. At this point I did not trust him to do anything, so I sent the paperwork off myself and filed it and received my court date. The lesson here is if you don't have any children and no one is disputing the divorce just do it yourself. A lot of these attorneys are just money hungry and do not have your best interest at heart. I had to buy this lesson, but it most definitely will not happen again. You should not have to out people to get them to do what they were paid to do in the first place.

Mr. Rasberry is an excellent attorney who was there with me through every step of the divorce process. He gave me all the information and help that I needed. Any questions I had he answered them and made sure that I understood. It was a difficult situation to be in as any divorce can be but he helped make the process as stress free as possible.
