Professional misconduct

This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority.

  1. Further suspension stayed
    issued in IL, 1994


    Further 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. Typically the requirements are included in a probation term the lawyer has been given at the same time.

    Charles’s comment: “I successfully completed my probation and have been practicing law as a attorney since 1995. I am the owner of the law firm of Antonietti and Associates, specializing in Criminal Defense, Divorce and Family law.”

  2. Suspension followed by probation
    issued in IL, 1993


    This type of suspension means an attorney lost his or her license to practice law for a period of time. When the attorney returns to practice the State monitors the his or her activities for a period of time.

    Charles’s comment: “This suspension was due to an alcohol related incident that occurred 25 years ago. This incident was not related to my work as an attorney or my ability to practice law.”
