"Pro Se, Pro Bono" Still The Practice Of Law

The Indiana Supreme Court has concluded that a suspended attorney engaged in the practice of law in a guardianship matter.

The representation had begun before the attorney was suspended. The problem was that he did not withdraw as counsel for his two clients, but purported to represent them on a "pro se, pro bono" basis after the suspension.

The court declined to find that he was in contempt of the suspension order and imposed a fine. (Mike Frisch)
