The Serial Defaulter

The New Jersey Supreme Court added two years of suspension to a one year suspension of an attorney that was scheduled to be completed in January 2013. The attorney engaged in neglect of several client matters.

The Disciplinary Review Board detailed the attorney's "egregious disciplinary history" and noted that he was a "serial defaulter" who had "demonstrated no sign of any intention to comply with the Court's directives in the [earlier] suspension order."

 Further, he failed to learn from his past mistakes in a manner that showed 'a disturbing pattern of disregard for the ethics system in general." (Mike Frisch)
