This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority.
This means the attorney resigned in order to avoid being disbarred. "Disbarment" is the most serious penalty for a lawyer.
Orrin’s comment: “See the "About Me" section for the story of how I became the only practicing lawyer in the state of Oregon (and only the second one in the history of the State) to be allowed to return to the practice of law after disbarment. It is the tale of a case that could not be won, and a victory for faith in the power of men and women to change their lives.”

About three years ago, I hired Orrin to help with legal issues from the death of my wife. Orrin was very helpful, straightforward, and got the job done. And he's been available for followup issues ever since. The only complaint I have about Orrin is while he is a good writer, his editing skills sometimes are lacking (which he'll freely admit). So, I recommend him, but check his writing.
