Robin Sax Criminal defense Attorney
This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority.
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.
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.
