Unauthorized Practice Results In Significant Sanction

A Pennsylvania attorney who had continued to practice after being transferred to inactive status was suspended for a year and a day by the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania. The court accepted a joint petition in support of discipline by consent that had been filed on behalf of the attorney and the Office of Disciplinary Counsel. The attorney had admitted the misconduct and had no prior discipline. However, the "unauthorized practice was open and defiant in that Respondent personally took depositions of two witnesses in her law office, an office that should not have been operating during her 'inactive' status."
