Milwaukee attorney gets reprimand for misconduct

Milwaukee attorney John Loew received a public reprimand from the Wisconsin Supreme Court on Friday for two counts of professional misconduct, including failure to notify a client of suspension.

On Oct. 11, 2007, the court suspended Loew’s license, but he did not notify an estate planning client of the discipline, according to the order. He also failed to respond to inquiries from the client about the status of his representation.

In 2010, the court suspended Loew’s license for 60 days on seven counts of misconduct tied to his mishandling of two probate matters.

Loew’s license is currently suspended for nonpayment of State Bar dues and noncompliance with Continuing Legal Education requirements.

The Office of Lawyer Regulation filed a complaint on April 8, 2011, alleging the misconduct tied to the 2007 estate planning case.

Loew failed to file a response to the complaint with the court and OLR filed a motion for default judgment after 90 days.

The court granted the motion, issued the public reprimand and ordered Loew to pay $549.23 for costs of the proceedings.
