This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority.
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.
James’s comment: “As a young attorney I was hired as an associate for a sole practitioner in 1978. A year later I became a partner with this attorney. Over the years the partnership became very dysfunctional. I attempted to help this attorney to make it a viable business, to no avail. Complaints came in resulting in 2007 in a censure for both myself and my attorney partner and a requirement that the partnership be dissolved. Since 2007 I have been successfully on my own with no problems with the Bar.”

Attorney Jim Leather represented me in my divorce and child custody case. He was very thorough in understanding the complex details of my case. His office, myself and Attorney Leather worked together to address the issues, concerns and proceedings. I am very pleased with the results and have recommended him and will continue to do so.
