This means the attorney did something wrong, but the Bar did not suspend the lawyer. Typically in this case the lawyer's poor behavior is exposed to the public in hopes that he or she will not repeat the behavior.
Michael's comment:“This related to a medical lien on a small PI settlement. I made the decision to take the public reprimand rather than wasting time to go to trial on the issue.”
