Rhode Island attorney’s license suspended

Rhode Island Supreme Court recently suspended a lawyer’s license due to unethical practices and alcohol-related issues, Providence Journal reported on May 3.

Reports said the three-month suspension was served to attorney Layne Savage on May 2. According to the high court’s Disciplinary Board findings, Savage deliberately lied to acquire a Massachusetts driver’s license when her Rhode Island card was suspended after she was apprehended for drunken driving. Savage reportedly had a history of alcohol-related problems. Aside from the three-month suspension of her license, Savage will also need to undergo counseling and regularly attend Alcoholics Anonymous sessions. Her practice regularly handles drunk-driving cases.

Facing license suspension as a lawyer may negatively affect your reputation of giving beneficial legal counsel. You may want to seek another lawyer’s service to help you defend your license.
