Tales Out Of School

The Colorado Presiding Disciplinary Judge approved a conditional admission of misconduct and imposed an 18 month suspension with all but nine months stayed on completion of two yearts probation. The attorney and co-counsel represented a client charged with stealing $1.2 million from her employer.

The attorneys violated their duties of confidentiality in two in camera conferences with the judge and prosecutor: "[The attorneys] made statements...related to their disagreement with the client's decision to reject a plea offer and other statements to preserve their own interests and in-turn, failed to maintain the confidences of the client.
