Proposed Sanction Deemed Insufficient

The Iowa Supreme Court rejected the proposed six-month suspension recommended by its Grievance Commission and imposed a two-year suspension for neglect, failure to provide an accounting and return personal papers of a client and failure to cooperate with the isciplinary investigation. The court reviews attorney discipline matters de novo. While a six-month suspension is within the range of appropriate sanctions for neglect of legal matters, the attorney had a record of prior discipline and the additional violations. The attorney had indicated that he has no plan to resume the practice of law. (Mike Frisch)
