Remember The Titan

The web page of the Virginia State Bar reports:

On December 27, 2011, the Virginia State Bar Disciplinary Board administratively suspended [an attorney's] license to practice law for failing to comply with a subpoena duces tecum issued by the bar.

The attorney has been described in a Washington Post article as

...an acknowledged titan of the D.C. area divorce bar, a former president of the Virginia Bar Association who boasts that he is the most expensive lawyer in the region: $850 an hour. He has an impressive office in the District and an array of high-profile clients.

Abovethelaw reported a suit (also the subject of the Post article) in which the attorney sued a former client for unpaid fees but ended up paying a six-figure sum to the former client.

Attorneys suspended on such grounds are reinstated when they comply with the subpoena. (Mike Frisch)
