Four Strikes, Almost Out

An attorney who had his fifth run in with the disciplinary system was indefinitely suspended by the Court of Appeals of Maryland. The attorney "maintains a high volume practice concentrating on criminal, drunk driving and other motor vehicle violations" and neglected three client cases. The court found "an inexcusable lack of concern on [the attorney's] part for the welfare of his clients, an unwillingness, after four warnings, to make necessary improvements to his office management." He must wait a year to apply for readmission. A dissent would disbar: "If disbarment is not warranted in this case for these types of cases, with a respondent with this history, it will never be warranted." (Mike Frisch)
