Consent Suspension Approved

The District of Columbia Court of Appeals has approved a consent disposition and imposed a 60-day suspension of an attorney who had "inaccurately represented his status at the law form where he was employed, made a false representation on behalf of a friend, improperly charged personal expenses to others, worked outside the firm against the law firm's written policies, and asserted a position on behalf of clients that was adverse to a position taken by a client of the firm without first obtaining informed consent of all parties."

LawShucks reports that the misconduct took place while the attorney was employed at Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman LLP. (Mike Frisch)
