Housecleaning

The Colorado Presiding Disciplinary Judge accepted a conditional admission of misconduct and imposed a stayed suspension of six months, with probation of three years, for misconduct in connection with a client that she had hired

to clean her house and to work on her political campaign.

The summary on the court's web page notes that the attorney (1) never specified her hourly rate in representing the client, (2) violated the conflict of interest rule by posting bond, paying rent and vehicle impound fees that were not litigation expenses and (3) gave conflicted tax advice influenced by the attorney's interest in a tax refund.
