Non-Cooperation Increases Sanction

The Pennsylvania Supreme Court adopted a recommendation of its Disciplinary Board to suspend an attorney for a year and a day. The attorney had failed to perform legal services for two clients, converted an advance fee(which he eventially repaid), and had been convicted of alcohol-related driving offenses. He had failed to report the convictions and had not participated in the bar proceedings, which the board treated as an aggravating factor. (Mike Frisch)
