An attorney who had continued an active practice before state and federal courts after being placed on inactive status for failure to complete CLE obligations agreed to an 18 month suspension. The sanction was imposed pursuant to the agreement by the Pennsylvania Supreme Court. The attorney had failed to notify his law firm of his suspension.
As we have previously mentioned, Pennsylvania is a jurisdiction that takes a particulary dim view of unauthorized law practice in such circumstances. (Mike Frisch)
