Practice Pointer: Open Certified Letters From The Bar

The Ohio Supreme Court has imposed a reprimand of an attorney who had failed to respond from correspondence from the Akron Bar Association concerning a client complaint.

According to the recommendation of the Board of Commissioners on Grievances and Discipline, the attorney:

...admitted that he did not respond to any of the certified mail from the Akron Bar association. He testified that he simply did not recall opening the certified mail and did not realize the gravity of the situation.

The attorney responded after another attorney "advised him of the gravity of the situation and advised him to take immediate action." He did. (Mike Frisch)
