Limited Practice Violation Results In Revocation

The Michigan Attorney Discipline Board has affirmed a hearing panel's revocation of the license of a special legal consultant.

Under Michigan's rules regulating practice, a "special legel consultant" may engage in limited practice on matters of a foreign jurisdiction where the consultant is licensed. The attorney here was permitted to offer professional advice on matters involving interpretation of Nigerian law.

He entered his appearance as counsel in a civil matter involving allegations of negligence and breach of contract. The matter did not involve issues of Nigerian law.

The board noted that he also had a website that advertised his availability in a number of areas of domestic law. (MIke Frisch)
