Are you an attorney? Endorse this lawyer
This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority.
This means the the State has concerns about the attorney's practice of law and he or she has failed to respond to the State's inquiries. As a consequence, the attorney's license has been suspended.
Suspended indefinitely means an attorney lost his or her license to practice law for an unknown period of time. The attorney will need to re-apply for admission to the Bar if he or she intends to resume practice in the future.
This means an attorney on probation has violated its terms and the original discipline, usually a suspension, has been reinstated. He or she will not be able to practice law again until the suspension expires.
Suspension stayed means the attorney has been suspended, but that the suspension is placed on hold (and ultimately removed) if the attorney complies with certain requirements.
