Excellent Service in Municipal Court Case
Mr. Engel represented me in a matter in a municipal court in Southwest Ohio. I faced a misdemeanor charge arising out of a traffic accident. He was able to negotiate a very good resolution of the matter with the prosecutor.

Professional misconduct

Suspension For Term issued in OH, 2012

Suspended for term means an attorney lost his or her license to practice law for a period of time. The attorney typically returns to practicing law when the suspension expires.

Joshua's comment: “Engel was disciplined by the Ohio Supreme Court for an incident in 2010 involving the interception of emails at the Ohio Department of Public Safety. The Hearing Committee noted that witnesses testified to Engel’s “honesty, integrity, and dedication” and noted “ample evidence of his past public service.” Justice Lundberg Stratton, who wrote that shesaw “no justice” in the penalty imposed.”
