Timber!

An attorney was cautioned by the Arkansas Committee on Professional Conduct, Panel B, in connection with his represenation of a client in a wrongful wood cutting case. The suit had been brought against the attorney's client by a timber company which owned the right to the timber in question. The lawyer had entered his appearence shortly after an adverse judgment was rendered against the client pro se. He failed to timely file for necessary extensions and did not perfect the record on appeal. The lapses "resulted in his clients being denied their opportunity for appellate review of a judgment of $87,603.57 against them." (Mike Frisch)
