The Georgia Supreme Court has accepted a proposed suspension of eighteen months of an attorney who engaged in a consenual sexual relationship with a divorce client and assisted the client in false discovery responses that concealed the relationship.
The attorney was admitted in 2009 and was practicing as a solo.
The court considered the attorney's inexperience, lack of prior discipline, full cooperation and his belief that the relationship was not subject to discovery. (Mike Frisch)
