I represented Ms. Renick in the Bar Court matter that resulted in the reproval displayed on this page, and I think she was unfairly treated. I'd encourage anyone reading this to contact me to discuss it. In my opinion, and the opinion of at least one Bar official of whom I am aware, this reproval should not have been imposed at all. The matter did not involve the practice of law in any way. I had prepared a motion to dismiss but was told by a Bar Court judge that he had "never heard of" such a motion being granted. Based on that statement we felt obligated to agree to the only settlement the Bar was willing to offer. That was unfair, and I think it is also unfair to simply show it as a red flag without any explanation of the circumstances. I would urge anyone viewing this profile to contact me to discuss this further. Ms. Renick is a talented lawyer who has been unfairly treated by the Bar, in my opinion.
