Professional misconduct

This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority.

  1. Reprimand
    issued in WA, 2000


    This means the attorney 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.

    H.’s comment: “My partner improperly used funds from our Trust Account without my knowledge. I personally replaced the funds which he had taken. The Bar Assoication reprimanded me for failure to properly supervise my partner even though he was the Senior Partner.”
