Professional misconduct

This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority.

  1. Suspension
    issued in LA, 2003


    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.

    Jeffrey’s comment: “This suspension was related to failure to file and pay taxes.”
