An attorney who had previously been reprimanded, censured and suspended for three months has been suspended for one year and until further court order by the New Jersey Supreme Court.
The attorney engaged in serious neglect and related violations in two matters. He also failed to cooperate in the disciplinary proceedings. The Disciplinary Review Board declined to find that his unkept promises to cooperate amounted to false statements, concluding that he likely intended to cooperate but did not follow through.
The suspension was imposed consecutively to an interim suspension. (Mike Frisch)
