State high court adds reprimand to suspended attorney

The Wisconsin Supreme Court publicly reprimanded an attorney Wednesday for mishandling Social Security and immigration cases.

Amoun Vang Sayaovong’s license is currently suspended. His current work address is in St. Paul, however he has a website and phone number that place him in Milwaukee.

Sayaovong mishandled client money and did not perform duties that he was hired to do, according to the court’s per curiam decision.

Sayaovong did not respond to the complaint or participate in the disciplinary proceedings, so the Supreme Court found him in default Wednesday. The justices publicly reprimanded him and ordered him to pay $4,000 in restitution and $371.80 for the cost of the proceedings.

Savaovong graduated from the University of Michigan Law School in 2006 and was admitted to the Wisconsin State Bar the following year. He did not immediately respond to an email Wednesday.

The decision also makes reference to a separate OLR investigation, though a complaint for that case has not been filed.
