The Rhode Island Supreme Court has imposed the identical reciprocal discipline of a year and a day suspension as previously ordered against an attorney by the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court.
The attorney had "vastly inflated billings to clients to increase his compensation from [his] firm."
He resigned from the law firm when the misconduct was discovered, returned unearned fees and "waived all efforts to receive fees that had been charged but not collected." (Mike Frisch)
