This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority.
An admonition means an attorney did something wrong but may still practice law. The Bar gives the lawyer an admonition in hopes that he or she will not repeat the behavior.
German’s comment: “A grievance was filed by a party (seller) to an escrow dispute in a matter in which my firm served as the escrow agent for a real estate transaction as well as representing the buyer (customary in Florida). We failed to timely deposit the escrow check. The transaction subsequently closed and the escrowed funds were properly and timely delivered at closing. Our delay in depositing the check and failing to advise the seller of the delay was improper, the admonishment was appropriate.”
