Practice After Suspension Leads To Disbarment

An attorney who had been suspended by the Minnesota Supreme Court was ordered to refrain from practice before the United States Patent & Trademark Office.

However, the attorney failed to heed the order of suspension.

As a result, he is now disbarred in Minnesota:

[The attorney] committed contempt of court by practicing law after a suspension order, and he engaged in false and dishonest conduct by identifying himself as an attorney authorized to practice law despite being under suspension. He also disregarded his obligation to provide the required proof that he notified his clients of his suspension to to cooperate with the...disciplinary investigation. His conduct was serious and by its very nature harmed the legal profession.

The court found no mitigating factors. (Mike Frisch)
