More Than 60 Days

The Maryland Court of Appeals has ordered the indefinite suspension of an attorney who had previously been suspended for 60 days.

The attorney (on mistaken advice of counsel) believed that his reinstatement was automatic after the 60 day period of suspension had run. It was not. He was required to pay costs and petition for reinstatement.

Once he learned of the mistake, he notified clients of the suspension and sought reinstatement nunc pro tunc. The court denied the request to backdate the reiinstatement.

Here, the court found that he had engaged in unauthorized practice as well as other misconduct in two matters. (Mike Frisch)
