Julio's comment:“This was an unfortunate event, but it is one that has changed my life. I have done and continue to do everything necessary to ensure that nothing like this ever happens again. My issues never dealt with any inappropriate conduct regarding my legal profession, but rather, it involved personal issues with alcohol. I have learned to respect the disease of alcoholism. I cherish my sobriety and I feel the best way to show my gratitude is to help others who suffer from this terrible affliction.”
