This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority.
Suspension means an attorney lost his or her license to practice law for a specific period of time. The attorney typically returns to practicing law when the suspension expires.
Joel’s comment: “This was a minor infraction which resulted in a 90 day suspension. The disciplinary commission found that I had no dishonest intent. The commission stated: “The Hearing Board found, however, that Brodsky did not act with a dishonest intent, but rather intended to obtain the client's funds in order to safeguard them against a perceived risk of imminent forfeiture to the State. …... the Administrator had not proven that Brodsky ....... engaged in conduct involving dishonesty"”

I found Joel Brodsky to be very professional and caring. He was always available whenever I needed to contact him. He took time to explain the and made sure I understood what I was up against in my particular situation. He is very easy to talk to and not intimidating like many others.
I would definitely recommend him to others needing legal assistance.
