The Maryland Court of Appeals held that an attorney who was indefinitely suspended engaged in unauthorized practice by providing clients with "immigration consulting" services. While such unauthorized practice would ordinarily result in disbarment, the court continued the attorney on indefinte suspension "in light of [her] failing health and intent to return to her homeland..."
The court found that repetition of the misconduct was unliekly under the circumstances. (Mike Frisch)
