  • Kristopher K Rezagholi

    I worked with Mr. Stanley on complex intellectual property and business dispute matters. He is an aggressive and diligent attorney. I would strongly encourage anyone looking for trial attorney to retain his services.

Professional misconduct

This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority.

  1. Admonition and Probation
    issued in AZ, 2015


    An admonishment means the attorney did something wrong but may still practice law. While on probation, the State monitors the attorney's activities for a period of time in hopes that he or she will not repeat the behavior.

  2. Censure
    issued in AZ, 2001


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

    Brian’s comment: “Related to back-office problems - annual renewal documents were not forwarded, resulting in administrative suspension. Then there was confusion as to whether or not reinstatement had been completed. Result was that I kept representing clients even though suspension (for failure to pay annual bar renewal fee) had not been lifted. I mistakenly thought it had been, and the Bar thought I should have been much more careful not to practice unless certain my annual renewal fee had been received.”
