No Response Leads To Suspension

A Vermont attorney was suspended for 30 day with probation for failure to respond to a bar complaint. The attorney was admitted in 1963 and was subject of a client complaint that alleged neglect, failure to communicate and failure to return unearned fees.

The attorney failed to respond to the complaint. As a result, he was served with charges of failure to respond to the client complaint. He then defaulted on the charge. According to the Board, it is not known whether or not he has retired from practice.

The sanction will require the attorney to notify all clients of his suspended status. If he is reinstated, he must respond to the charges or be suspended again. (Mike Frisch)
