A New Jersey attorney who has never been admitted to practice in Delaware has nonetheless been suspended for one year by the Delaware Supreme Court.
The court found that the attorney engaged in unauthorized practice of law by setting up an entity to refer cases to Delaware lawyers. Four personal injury matters were handled in that manner.
The court rejected the proposed sanction of its Board of Professional Responsibility of public reprimand and agreed with the suspension recommendation of the Office of Disciplinary Counsel. (Mike Frisch)
