Professional Responsibility — public reprimand — suspension

Where attorney Lisa A. Webber Hicks received a public reprimand and a four-year suspension in Tennessee, reciprocal discipline is appropriate.

“In reciprocal discipline situations, our rules provide that we will impose discipline that is identical to the discipline imposed in the other jurisdiction, unless one of the three exceptions set forth in SCR 22.22(3) applies. In this case Attorney Webber Hicks has not alleged that any of the exceptions applies and has not responded to the OLR’s complaint or the order to show cause in any way. Our review of the matter also does not indicate that any exception applies in this case. Thus, we impose both a public reprimand and a four-year suspension to match the two instances of public discipline imposed in Tennessee.”
