Multiple Misrepresentations Merit Suspension

The Wisconsin Supreme Court recently imposed discipline on an attorney who had made multiple misrepresentations regarding the status of seven probate matters. The attorney had stipulated to the misconduct but not the level of discipline. The court adopted the referree's proposed sanction of an eighteen month suspension, rejecting the attorney's request for either a non-suspensory or probated sanction. The court noted the favorable endorsements of a number of clients, but found that the pattern of falsifications required an actual suspension of significant length. The attorney also was required to pay the costs of the bar proceeding. (Mike Frisch)
