Professional misconduct

This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority.

  1. Public Reprimand
    issued in LA, 2001


    Public reprimand means an attorney did something wrong but may still practice law. The State gives the lawyer a public reprimand in hopes that he or she will not repeat the behavior. Details of the infraction are made part of the public record.

    Ronald’s comment: “The disciplinary action taken 15 years ago was by virtue of allowing payment of dues and CLE requirements to lapse and accepting an appointment as a curator during this time.”
