This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority.
Public reprimand means the attorney did something wrong but may still practice law. The Bar warns the lawyer in hopes that he or she will not repeat the behavior. Details of the infraction are made part of the public record.
Barbara’s comment: “I admitted to my mistake and agreed to the consequences.”

I was one of the legal Board members for an HOA that Ms. Stage was hired to represent at the time she was hired. I personally consulted with Ms. Stage on phone calls, received multiple certified letters from Ms. Stage operating as the Board's attorney, and exchanged emails with her over Board matters related to the recall (legal removal) of two other Board members based on a majority vote of the homeowners. After she was hired to represent the Association, Ms. Stage failed to properly represent the wishes of the majority of the HOA or the majority of Board members (her clients) in a legal recall of two Board members. Instead, Ms. Stage worked to prevent these two Board members from being removed from their Board positions. Ms. Stage filed several incorrect motions to the DBPR to deny the certification of the recall of these two Board members. The majority of the HOA and the majority of the Board were then forced to hire two separate attorneys to counter Ms. Stages misunderstanding of law and facts in the case. After many months of legal bills and filings, the state ruled against Ms. Stage and certified the recall.

I appreciate the swiftness and accuracy of her information. I wish we had more lawyers like her in this world. She took the time to answer a question for me without asking for a credit card up front. If I am ever in need of an attorney or know of anyone who needs one I will 100% recommend her. Thank you for your reply.
