A District Committee of the Virginia State Bar has imposed a public reprimand with terms of an attorney who had continued to advertise his legal services on his website after he had been suspended for six months. When confronted about the situation by a bar investigator, the attorney "stated that he knew he had a website advertising his law practice, that he did not consider taking it down during his suspension, that he did not think about it, that he did not know how to take it down, but that he would look for the person who sold him the service to take the website down for the remainder of his suspension."
The terms of the sanction require the attorney to take the website down within 30 days. (Mike Frisch)
