An attorney who was working through a placement agency failed to keeo required contemporaneous records of his time for billing purposes. His after-the-fact attempts to reconstruct his time resulted in negligent overbilling, as the bills were "relete with errors" that led to overpayments to the attorney.
As a result, a reprimand was imposed by the Massachusetts Board of Bar Overseers.
There were mitigating factors involving serious health issues in his family and restitution. (Mike Frisch)
