Michael is a top notch criminal defense attorney. He has defended the whole gamut of criminal cases -- from DUI's to murder to sexual abuse to narcotics to strike cases and everything in between. We have worked on numerous cases together. Michael is practical and bright and tough. He's also a dear friend. I trust him implicitly. I endorse him without reservation.
Darren Kavinoky, DUI and DWI Attorney
I’m so delighted that Michael Meehan is part of The KLF family. They demonstrate a commitment to delivering Peace of Mind to all of our clients that is truly awesome. Michael knows that our clients care about getting the best possible result, having the best experience of being represented, and feeling fought for and cared about. My ultimate test when hiring an associate is whether I would want them going to battle on my behalf. There is simply no question that when it comes to Michael Meehan, I would jump in a foxhole with them without hesitation.
This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority.
A censure or reprimand issued by the Supreme Court or the State Bar Court that is not a matter of public record unless imposed after the initiation of formal disciplinary proceedings. No period of suspension is imposed. The reproval may be imposed with duties or conditions.
When an attorney is censured it means he or she did something wrong but may still practice law. Typically in this case the lawyer's poor behavior is exposed to the public in hopes that he or she will not repeat the behavior.
