Professional misconduct

This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority.

  1. Discipline, Probation; no Actual Suspension
    issued in CA, 2011


    This sanction means the attorney had a suspension placed on hold (and ultimately removed) by complying with certain requirements.

  2. Public reproval with/duties
    issued in CA, 2010


    This sanction means the attorney did something wrong but may still practice law. The Bar placed conditions on the lawyer's activities to try to prevent a recurrence of the wrongful act.
