License of veteran lawyer in Beloit suspended
Posted on Wednesday, November 6th, 2013
A license of a veteran lawyer in Beloit, Wisconsin was suspended after she was involved in several cases of professional misconduct, including funds mishandling, according to a report published by the Beloit Daily News on Wednesday, October 23.
According to reports, the Wisconsin Supreme Court suspended lawyer Mary Biester’s license, an act that will take effect on November 25, after she was charged with 30 counts of professional misconduct. Attorney Biester did not contest any of the charges against her and now faces several consequences, including an order to complete 20 hours of education, a $900 fee to be paid to a former client and $25,584 to be paid to the Office of Lawyer Regulation.
Former judge Dennis Flynn of the Racine County Circuit observed that Biester’s misuse of funds has been consistent for several years.
