No Grave Injustice

The Arizona Presiding Disciplinary Judge has imposed a reprimand and probation as reciprocal discipline for the following Indiana misconduct:

Respondent stipulated that in Indiana he held himself out to the public and or represented that he was licensed to practice law in Indiana and used public communication containing false, fraudulent, misleading, deceptive, self laudatory or unfair statement or claim which also implied that he was a lawyer certified or recognized as a specialist. Those statements or claims, specifically that Respondent’s firm was a national firm and specialized in automobile accidents, may have caused a person to misunderstand or be deceived.

Respondent’s negligent misconduct cause actual and potential injury to clients, the legal system and as a professional and constituted grounds for the imposition of discipline pursuant to the Rules of the Supreme Court of Arizona...

Both sides had contended that identical discipline to that imposed in Indiana would be a "grave injustice." (Mike Frisch)
