Professional misconduct

This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority.

  1. Public reproval with/duties
    issued in CA, 2004


    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.

    Alan’s comment: “Attorney is of good character, integrity, excellent standing and takes responsibility for everything he does.”
