Minnesota Immigration Attorney Disbarred for History of Misconduct

The Supreme Court of Minnesota recently disbarred an immigration attorney for repeated misconduct in connection with representation of his clients. According to the court’s Opinion, disbarment was appropriate given the attorney’s long disciplinary history; incompetent representation and misappropriation of client funds across several matters with vulnerable clients, including failing to return unearned fees and creating costly and time-consuming delays; and lack of remorse for his actions. The court found that the attorney violated Minnesota Rules of Professional Conduct rules 1.1 (Competency); 1.3 (Diligence); 1.4 (Communication); 1.15 (Safekeeping Property); 1.16 (Terminating Representation); and 8.4 (Misconduct) and disbarred the attorney.
