Fraud Results In Five-Year Suspension

The Hawaii Supreme Court has imposed a five-year suspension for misconduct described in the court's order:

...it appears that Respondent...falsified two letters that were material to a lawsuit pending against him and presented them to opposing counsel as authentic, fraudulently misrepresented his financial assets to a federal bankruptcy court for personal benefit, violated his professional duty of diligence and competence to a client in the underlying divorce matter, and has demonstrated a pattern of misconduct before tribunals...

He also must pay costs as a condition of reinstatement. (Mike Frisch)
