A University of Texas School of Law graduate has had his law license suspended for three years after he failed to appear in court to represent a client. The 37 year-old attorney also failed to respond to her official complaint filed with the Texas Bar’s Commission for Lawyer Discipline.
Because of his absence, the commission found him guilty of five violations of the Rules of Professional Conduct. The lawyer was given a a partially probated suspension for three years and was ordered to pay back the client’s $2,000 for his services and the State Bar $3,157 for its investigation.
The Supreme Court of West Virginia also followed suit and suspended his West Virginia law license, which he acquired in 2004, for three years.
