Stayed Suspensions In Colorado

The Colorado Presiding Disciplinary Judge has approved a conditional admission of misconduct and imposed a stayed six-month suspension in a case where

After meeting with and accepting payment from a client, [the attorney] determined that the client had overpaid him by $182.00. For a period of approximately a week, he kept the overpayment in his desk drawer and did not record the overpayment or notify his law firm or his client of the overpayment.

The attorney must complete a two-year probation.

Another Colorado attorney received a stayed six-month suspension for being unable to pay a restaurant bill after becoming "extremely intoxicated" at the establishment. The attorney must complete a three-year period of probation. (Mike Frisch)
