No Probation

The Illinois Review Board recommends a 60 day suspension in a recent case where the attorney had neglected an estate matter for several years, leading the clients to believe that there was an active court case that had never been filed. Despite the absence of prior discipline and impressive testimony of general good character and pro bono work, the Board concludes that probation is not appropriate because the conduct was intentional and not the result of poor office practices. The attorney's overall competence hurt rather than helped for sanction purposes. (Mike Frisch)
