Professional misconduct

This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority.

  1. Probation
    issued in AZ, 2009


    Probation means an attorney did something wrong but may still practice law. The State monitors the lawyer's activities for a period of time in hopes that he or she will not repeat the behavior.

    Charles’s comment: “The "discipline" was for a case that I angered a prosecutor on. The prosecutor complained and the State Bar demanded a copy of my fee agreement with my client. Prior to this "discipline" I never had written fee agreements with clients. I had always used handshake agreements, believing that if you can't trust your attorney without a written agreement, what good is your attorney? In any event I was disciplined for not having a written fee agreement. The client never complained.”
