An attorney who had been twice convicted of alcohol-related traffic offenses was suspended for two years, stayed in its entirety in favor of probation for two years, based on an agreed disposition adopted by the Pennsylvania Supreme Court. The attorney has been sober since August 2007 and must remain so during the period of probation. There are a number of probationary conditions imposed to monitor his compliance.
The attorney has a record of prior discipline including a current three year suspension imposed retroactive to December 2004 for indecent assualt on a client. The two year probation goes into effect when the attorney obtains his reinstatement to practice. (Mike Frisch)
