A Wide Array Of Fee-Related Misconduct

The Indiana Supreme Court imposed a suspension of at least two years without automatic reinstatement in a matter "involving repeated violations of rules prohibiting improper fee arrangements, including the improper use of nonrefundable retainers, improper billing practices, failure to return unearned fees, charging unreasonable fees, charging a minimum of 1/4 hour for any work (including such tasks as review of a short email), charging lawyer rates for clerical work, charging for work that did not benefit his clients, charging for work done after being discharged, charging for work done to undo the results of earlier mistakes, charging former clients for costs involved in responding to grievances..." and other violations.
