Patently Unethical

An attorney who practiced before the United States Patent & Trademark Office ("PTO") while administratively suspended from her only Bar was suspended for six months  with reinstatement on conditions by a justice of the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court.

The PTO requires that an attorney be an active member of a state bar.

According to this summary, the attorney engaged in other misconduct by failing to represent her client with diligence, failing to communicate, misrepresentations and failure to return the file. (Mike Frisch)
