In a time where legal work is hard to find, an attorney in Colorado was found to have engaged in dishonesty and fraud by working at two law firms (he was a partner in one of the firms) at the same time without disclosing the conduct to either firm. He made misrepresentations to partners at both firms. The attorney also had transferred cases to the second firm and written off time at the first firm.
The Colorado Presiding Disciplinary Judge accepted a conditional admission of misconduct and ordered a three-year suspension with all but a year and a day suspended, followed by two-years of probation. (Mike Frisch)
