Restitution Leads To Sanction Reduction

The Supreme Court of Pennsylvania approved a joint petition for a two-year suspension in a matter where an attorney had converted to his own use fee payments due to his firm. The court decision appends a lengthy agreed statement of facts that lays out the particulars in detail. The discussion of sanction options is of particular interest-- the attorney had no prior discipline and had made restitution to the firm. These factors were considered to merit a sanction somewhat less than that imposed in other cases involving law-firm conversion. (Mike Frisch)
