RE: Administrative Suspensions for Failure to Comply with Continuing Legal Education Requirements


ORDER


The South Carolina Commission on Continuing Legal Education and Specialization has furnished the attached list of lawyers who were administratively suspended from the practice of law on April 1, 2012, under Rule 419(b)(2), SCACR, and remain suspended as of June 1, 2012.  Pursuant to Rule 419(e)(2), SCACR, these lawyers are hereby suspended from the practice of law by this Court.  They shall surrender their certificates to practice law in this State to the Clerk of this Court by July 1, 2012.

Any petition for reinstatement must be made in the manner specified by Rule 419(f), SCACR.  If a lawyer suspended by this order does not seek reinstatement within three (3) years of the date this order, the lawyer’s membership in the South Carolina Bar shall be terminated and the lawyer’s name will be removed from the roll of attorneys in this State.   Rule 419(g), SCACR.

These lawyers are warned that any continuation of the practice of law in this State after being suspended by the provisions of Rule 419, SCACR, or this order is the unauthorized practice of law, and will subject them to disciplinary action under Rule 413, SCACR, and could result in a finding of criminal or civil contempt by this Court.  Further, any lawyer who is aware of any violation of this suspension shall report the matter to the Office of Disciplinary Counsel.   Rule 8.3, Rules of Professional Conduct for Lawyers, Rule 407, SCACR.

IT IS SO ORDERED.
