Four More Years

An attorney who was suspended for one year in 2006 was suspended for a consecutive period of four years as a result of a consent disposition approved by the Pennsylvania Supreme Court. The original discipline was imposed in connection with the misappropriation of fees due to the attorney's law firm. The misconduct at issue here came in the wake of the criminal and bar discipline investigations. The attorney filed an application to practice before the United States Patent & Trademark Office. He made a series of false and misleading statements in the application process, at first not disclosing and later giving misleading answers about the matter. He did pass the PTO registration exam.
