An attorney who sent "inappropriate" text messages to a client in a post-divorce matter and twice called the client and hung up was reprimanded by the Massachusetts Board of Bar Overseers.
The attorney was intoxicated when he sent the text messages.
He also had failed to report a DUI conviction to bar authorities.
The attorney has struggled with alcohol addiction and must comply with conditions imposed by the Bar's Lawyers Concerned for Lawyers program. (Mike Frisch)
