The Law Firm Of Me, Myself and I

A three-judge court in Virginia Beach, Virginia has imposed a suspension of 30 days followed by a year of probation in a matter involving a number of disciplinary violations.

The attorney had, among other things, advertised his practice as himself "& Associates" when in fact he had a solo practice. He also had a video linked to his web page in which a non-attorney was presented as a member of the firm. The web page listed non-existent firm practice groups, and falsely indicated that he had three office locations and decades of experience.

The probation requires the attorney to retain a practice consultant approved by Bar Counsel. If the attorney engages in further misconduct or fails to follow office procedures, he will be suspended for three years. (Mike Frisch)
