An Unusual Provision

An agreed disposition was reached in a Virginia bar matter where the attorney had failed to properly handle a criminal appeal to which he had been appointed. The agreement requires the attorney to withdraw from all pending appointed criminal cases, certify his compliance to Bar Counsel with supporting proof and not accept future court appointments in criminal matters. If the lawyer demonstrates compliance with the agreement, the matter will be closed. If not, the lawyer will be suspended for six months. (Mike Frisch)
