Unpaid Invoice Is Ethical Violation

The Colorado Presiding Disciplinary Judge has imposed a suspension of 18 months of an attorney who had defaulted on disciplinary charges.

In one count, the judge found that the attorney had entered into an agreement to pay a mediator but had not honored the resulting $1,093 bill.

The attorney's conduct in not paying the invoice amounted to conduct prejudicial to the administration of justice.

That's a useful precedent for an attorney's creditors. (Mike Frisch)
