This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority.
Reprimand means an attorney did something wrong but may still practice law. The State gives the lawyer a public reprimand in hopes that he or she will not repeat the behavior. Details of the infraction are made part of the public record.
Gary’s comment: “Please note this Citation type was a reprimand. Gary Nitzkin's clients rating of him and his teams' services are a 4.5 out of 5 stars!”
