This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority.
This means that the attorney's misconduct in another state, or jurisdiction, also violated the rules for practicing law in Kentucky.
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.

Michael got my friend out of a tight spot facing DUI charges. With the help of accurate representation of facts and advanced planning, the charges were dropped and my friend got his life back. Hiring this attorney was clearly the right choice.

I hired Michael Taylor Meehan to represent me in a DIP case. He was professional and diligent in every detail. He kept me updated throughout the entire process. My case ended up not being filed and dismissed. I did not need to go to court. He handled everything. I could not have done this without Michael's expertise and willingness to go the extra mile. I would not hesitate recommending or hiring him again. I do not plan on having to do that however and am grateful for the second chance I have been granted. Thank you Micheal for all of your knowledge and help.

I was terrified about my DUI and what would happen to me! Michael Meehan was there for me. He went the extra mile, always knowing he had my back during a difficult time was a great comfort! He listened intently and showed he cared! His knowledge of the law and an understanding of the justice system was of great help! I trusted him implicitly! I can't thank him enough!

Relationship: Worked together on matter
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.

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.
