Practice Tip: Appear For Oral Argument In Your Own Disciplinary Matter

The West Virginia Supreme Court of Appeals has ordered a reprimand of an attorney for lapses in the representation of clients in connection with two appeals.

The court found a number of mitigating and aggravating factors.

It helped that the attorney had taken steps to improve his office procedures through use of a consulting service that recommended improvements in his practice.

It did not help that the attorney missed oral argument before the court due to his mis-calendering of the argument date. (Mike Frisch)
