Are you an attorney? Endorse this lawyer
This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority.
Suspension means an 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.
Reprimand means an attorney did something wrong but may still practice law. The State gives the lawyer a public reprimand in hopes that he or she will not repeat the behavior. Details of the infraction are made part of the public record.
Christopher’s comment: “I fought for a father to see his children, who were being withheld from him illegally. I brought a motion to enforce placement, on the theory that even without a specific order in place, no parent should simply conceal her children from the father. The mother backed down, but not before her lawyer reported my motion to the Bar. The Bar disagreed with my creativity here, claiming that only specific placement orders can be enforced. Sad.”
