Attorneys – Discipline – Misrepresentation – Fabricated Medical Record – Unearned Fee – Failure to Return – Failure to Communicate (access required)

In re Dickey Where the respondent-attorney created a document that appeared to be a medical record and included it in a settlement package without indicating that it was not, in fact, a medical record, and where respondent failed to return an unearned fee to a different client and failed to communicate with a third client that his failure to proffer an expert witness had resulted in the dismissal of her medical malpractice claim, we suspend respondent from the practice of law in this state for two years. The two-year suspension shall run retroactively to the date of respondent’s interim suspension. Respondent shall pay the $8,073.99 costs of these proceedings and shall pay the $1,750 fee dispute award to his former client.
