An attorney who was disciplined for the unauthorized practice of law in Delaware (where he had never been admitted) has been reciprocally suspended for one year by the Pennsylvania Supreme Court, which had admitted him to practice in 1965.
The attorney had represented Delaware residents in more than 100 matters over a seven year period. The cases involved motor vehicle accidents that occured in Delaware.
Some of the cases were referred to the attorney from a Wilimington doctor. The attorney met with some of the clients in the doctor's office. Other cases came from "television advertisements which targeted Delaware residents." The attorney met with some of these clients in the Delaware office of his law firm.
The Pennsylvania court accepted a joint petition for reciprocal discipline. (Mike Frisch)
