One Divorce, Three Orders Of Discipline

The Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court has imposed a public reprimand of an attorney in connection with his representation of another attorney in her divorce.

The attorney "filed a financial statement in which he deliberately left blank the space that asked for the client's gross income for the previous year."

The client was suspended for three months for three acts of misconduct in the divorce. Her attorney employer was suspended for one month for issuing a misleading letter in connection with the divorce and other unrelated misconduct. (Mike Frisch)
