This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority.

This means the attorney did something wrong, but the Bar did not suspend the lawyer. 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.
David's comment:“This reprimand concerned a firm administration issue, was not related to David's abilities and honesty, and had no impact on David’s clients.”
