License Restored

The Pennsylvania Supreme Court has reinstated an attorney who went on inactive status in 2002. He moved to Virginia to care for his mother.

While in Virginia, he engaged in unauthorized practice. He also made multiple misrepresentations to Pennsylvania and Virginia authorities regarding his bar status. As a result, in 2005, he was suspended for five years in Pennsylvania.

A majority of the Disciplinary Board found reinstatement appropriate notwithstanding the absence of supporting character testimony. Two members of the board dissented and would find the evidence insufficient. (Mike Frisch)
