Professional misconduct

This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority.

  1. Suspension Deferred With Probation
    issued in LA, 2012

    updated

    Suspension deferred means the attorney has been suspended, but that the suspension is placed on hold (and ultimately removed) if the attorney complies with certain requirements.

    Seth’s comment: “This was an unfortunate incident related to one of the first cases I ever handled as an attorney in 2004. I appreciate the outcome of the process and look forward to the future. My license was never suspended and I am not on probation nor have had any incidents before or after this situation.”
