The Suit that Wasn't

An Arkansas attorney has been suspended for three months for misconduct in connection with the representation of a client in a partition matter.

The attorney failed to file suit for two years. She also failed to provide the client with a writing setting forth the basis and rate of her fees. Then, when the client complained to the Office of Professional Conduct, she engaged in dishonest conduct by faxing OPC a copy of the suit that she claimed she had filed. (Mike Frisch)
