Practicing While On Administrative Suspension Brings Administration Of Discipline

An attorney practiced law while suspended was disbarred by the Colorado Presiding Disciplinary Judge:

...Respondent flouted his duties to the legal profession by practicing law while under an administrative suspension. Much worse, however, his misconduct represented the second instance of similar behavior, as he was suspended in 2007 with no apparent effect upon his later actions. To the contrary, he testified under oath (but rather dismissively) that he had engaged in the unauthorized practice of law by representing [clients], even though he knew he had been administratively suspended for over four years.

In an unrelated matter, an attorney was suspended for three months for practice while administratively suspended and must petition for reinstatement. (Mike Frisch)
