Lawyer suspended from practicing law for 2 years
Posted on Tuesday, July 12th, 2011
A woman from Omaha narrowly avoided being disbarred on Friday but was suspended from practicing law for the next two years after she performed questionable acts on behalf of her elderly mother.
The woman was involved in a long legal dispute with her family over who should take care of their mother. Although the woman was not her mother’s lawyer, she filed motions for her for at least four years. This angered her family members, who said that the woman intentionally filed actions that were “harassing” and “embarrassing.”
The woman was also involved in a heated verbal fight with a judge in a Douglas County court. Although a court decided not to permanently disbar the woman because her actions were performed in an emotional state, she was suspended for two years because the court ruled her actions were unethical.
