This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority.
Stayed suspension/probation means an attorney did something wrong but may still practice law. The suspension is placed on hold (and ultimately removed) if the attorney complies with certain requirements. The State also monitors the lawyer's activities for a period of time in hopes that he or she will not repeat the behavior.

If anyone is looking to hire a DUII attorney, I strongly would recommend Edward T LeClaire. Mr. LeClaire is a very knowledgeable guy. From the minute I contacted his office Tatiana his secretary was very nice and understanding. Not knowing what to do, they both gave me the information I needed and the confidence. Mr. LeClaire and Tatana were there every step of the way confirming all my court dates and keeping me up to date on all the information we had submit. Not once did he give up on my case. I am very blessed and lucky to have found him. With all his knowledge and experience we were able to win the case.

Edward LeClaire offers great representation. What a knowledgeable, trustworthy, and experienced attorney!
The moment I learned he’d be representing me I got my peace of mind back. When we went to my hearing, I was even more amazed at his strategy. Don’t get deceived by his handsome looks and nice smile! This attorney is ready to defend you, and if there is anything that can be done for your case, rest assured - Edward LeClaire will do it. What can I say about my hearing? It was very long, it was very confusing, but the confidence of my attorney really made me feel more comfortable. And yes, we won! Thank you so much for all your help, I cant express my gratitude enough to do you justice! If any of my family or friends ever needs representation, I wont hesitate recommending Mr. LeClaire to them!

Mr. Le Claire has an amazing mind for legal issues. He seems to know the law inside and out; any questions I had about laws or my rights as a citizen were answered with depth and understanding that comes from someone who is a skilled attorney. What really sets him apart is how he advocates for client rights; many attorneys seem to just dial it in but Mr. LeClaire does not do that. I know that he has lots of trial experience and has gotten many good results for clients. I would highly recommend Mr. LeClaire.
