Put It In Writing

An Arizona hearing officer has recommended a censure with one year of probation for misconduct that involved, among other things, violating Arizona Rule 1.5 (b). The attorney had twice raised his hourly fee by $25 without notifying the client of the increase in writing. The other violations involved a tardy response to a bar investigation and running afoul of a previous probation imposed as a result of the suspension of his real estate law certification. He had used letterhead that continued to assert that he held the certification. (Mike Frisch)
