Negligent Estate Planner Placed on Probation

EvilA Texas lawyer recently received a two-year suspension from the practice of law which was in a most lenient fashion fully probated.

Here is a description of her sloppy behavior as reported in Disciplinary Actions, 71 Tex. B.J. 766, 767 (2008):

A panel of the District 7-A Grievance Committee found that in September 2006, the complainant hired [Attorney] to prepare a living trust and a family limited partnership.  [Attorney] subsequently neglected the complainant’s legal matter by failing to complete the work on the living trust and by preparing and filing a certificate of limited partnership with incorrect provisions for the complainant’s grandchildren. [Attorney] subsequently failed to return several of the complainant’s phone calls and failed to keep him reasonably informed regarding the status of his case.
