Insouciance Not Helpful In Bar Discipline Case

An attorney who accepted fees for services in an immigration matter and failed to perform as retained also failed to respond to the ensuing bar complaint.

As a result, the Virginia State Bar Disciplinary Board revoked his license to practice law in the Commonwealth.

The board noted that Bar Counsel had sought revocation for both the misconduct and the attorney's "insouciance" in responding. (Mike Frisch)
