This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority.
This means the lawyer did something wrong but the bar did not suspend the lawyer. 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.
This sanction means the attorney lost his or her license to practice law for a period of time. The attorney typically returns to practicing law when the suspension expires.

He understood my situation well and was willing to do what was necessary in an expedient manner to win my case.
He was professional and even funny when appropriate. He was not moving offices at the time maybe that was an over-site issue. Good man, good game plan.

Mr. Hedges did absolutely nothing on my case to move it forward. He held it for a year until it was due to expire. He would not take or return my phone calls or requests for information. He moved his offices and did not notify me of his new location or even that he had moved. When I looked him up, through my Internet browser to try and locate him, I found the reports of his misconduct. I found his new address and quickly drove to his offices to get my file and to ask him why he had not done anything to move my case forward and why he did not inform me that he had moved his office. I requested my file, told him he was fired and informed him that I had hired another lawyer. He had no answer for me. He turned his back, went to dig up my file, handed it to me and said, "This does not bother me at all. Good luck." Then walked away.
