License of La Crosse lawyer suspended
A lawyer in La Crosse has his license suspended for three months by the Wisconsin Supreme Court due to allegations of professional misconduct, a report from the LaCrosse Tribune stated on Saturday, December 14. According to the suspension order imposed on Friday, December 13, attorney James Grenisen will have to undergo a psychological evaluation before he can get his license back.
At least five counts of misconduct were filed against Grenisen last year after he committed fraud against a 66-year-old woman he represented. According to the article, Grenisen took money from his client and represented her in guardianship and protective placement, an area of the law with which he had no experience.
Attorney Grenisen, whose license will be suspended on January 17, did not contest the verdict.
