Resume

AVVO RATING 2.5 (Strong Caution)

Professional misconduct

This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority in 2020.

Suspension issued in LA, 2020
updated on 11/04/2021

This means the attorney lost his or her license to practice law for a period of time. The attorney typically returns to practicing law when the suspension expires.

Shane's comment: “This matter did not occur in the context of the practice of law; rather in a personal capacity. More particularly, the matter was for failing to disclose a campaign finance expenditure regarding a truthful publication. The Office of Disciplinary Counsel stipulated to good character and Chief Justice Weimer noted "the lack of harm to any client is undisputed."”
