Next Stop Graniteville

A lawyer who was admitted in Louisiana and South Carolina practiced law only in Louisiana. After a train derailment in Graniteville, South Carolina, he opened a law office there and aggressively attempted to solicit victims as clients. His newspaper ads and mail solicitations claimed an expertise that the lawyer did not have and inaccurately suggested the extent of his local ties. Disciplinary charges were brought and the South Carolina Supreme Court imposed an agreed public reprimand. (Mike Frisch)
