Third Time Is No Charm

An attorney admitted in 1987 in Louisiana was convicted of making knowing false official statements and using controlled substances. At the time, he was an attorney on active duty with the Navy Reserve. The Louisiana Supreme Court suspended him for two years as a result. the court then found that he had engaged in unauthorized practice after the suspension. He was suspended for two years, with all but a year and a day deferred.

The court found that he had continued to engage in unauthorized practice and had split fees with a non-lawyer after the second order of discipline. The court apparently has run out of patience--the lawyer is now permanently disbarred. (Mike Frisch)

mike - the fee splitting was with a lawyer, respondent was the non-lawyer due to his suspension - 8.4(a) brought respondent into the fee split violation
