An attorney suspended for two years in 2009 was suspended for an additional year and until further court order by the New Jerset Supreme Court.
The misconduct involved the complaint of a client who the attorney represented prior to the first suspension.
According to the Disiplinary Review Board, the "most troubling" violations involved a Christmas Eve visit to the client at his workplace by the attorney's brother. The brother acted at the attorney's direction. The visit "evidenc[ed] a shake down of [the attorney's] own client." The threats and intimidation of the client continued past the attorney's January 2, 2009 suspension.
The attorney defaulted on the charges. (Mike Frisch)
