The South Carolina Supreme Court imposed a suspension of three years in a matter involving multiple counts of ethical violations.
In addition to a number of client-related matters, the attorney had written a trust account check for $250 to the South Carolina Bar Lawyer Referral Service. She asserted that there were no client funds in the account at the time.
As conditions of reinstatement, the attorney must pay costs and complete the Legal Ethics and Practice Program Ethics school, Trust Account school and Advertising school. (Mike Frisch)
