Mixing Personal And Professional

The Arizona Supreme Court agreed with the proposed sanction of its Disciplinary Board and imposed a six month suspension followed by two years probation in a case involving a criminal defense attorney's handling of a probation violation matter.

The intimate personal relationship between attorney and client created a conflict of interest and led to the attorney's filing of a misleading pleading and acts in contravention of a court order regarding the client's living situation. (Mike Frisch)
