A Well Known Respondent

The Illinois ARDC has recently filed a disciplinary complaint charging the attorney with neglect and dishonesty toward his client. When pressed about the status of the case, the attorney allegedly told the client that "the wheels of justice grind slowly." The case would be otherwise unremarkable but for the identity of the accused attorney. It appears that the accused is the same James H. Himmel that rose to disciplinary fame as the first lawyer sanctioned for violating the duty to report misconduct (remembering, of course, that the Illinois version did not track the language of Model Rule 8.3) (Mike Frisch)
