Abandoned

A Louisiana hearing committee has recommended a six-month suspension with three months deferred and one year of probation in a matter where the attorney had essentially abandoned a client in a personal injury matter. The attorney stipulated to the facts and misconduct, leaving only the sanction issue to the committee. He was cooperative and remorseful but had a prior diversion for misconduct. (Mike Frisch)
