The Pennsylvania Supreme Court accepted a consent two-year suspension in a disciplinary matter that arose in the wake of a six-month suspension imposed in 2008. The attorney agreed that he had accepted a new matter shortly before the effective date of the first suspension. He then filed a required affidavit that falsely concealed the new matter.
The violation came to light when the new client filed a bar complaint. (Mike Frisch)
