Extreme Remorse Leads To Censure

The New York Appellate Division for the Fourth Judicial Department censured an attorney who had agreed to and did pay a nonlawyer for a referral that resulted in the lawyer's retention and failing to pay one-half of the fee to his partner in violation of a order applicable to the partnership dissolution. Mitigation: candor, cooperation, extreme remorse and a contentious partnership breakup.
