Professional Responsibility — Revocation

Where attorney Pablo Carranza admits 38 violations of the rules of professional responsibility, revocation is appropriate.

“Having reviewed Attorney Carranza’s petition, the OLR’s summary of the matters it is investigating, and the OLR’s recommendation, we accept Attorney Carranza’s petition for the revocation of his license to practice law in Wisconsin. See SCR 22.19(1), (2), and (5). The seriousness of Attorney Carranza’s misconduct demonstrates the need to revoke his law license to protect the public, the courts, and the legal system from the repetition of misconduct; to impress upon Attorney Carranza the seriousness of his misconduct; and to deter other attorneys from engaging in similar misconduct. See In re Disciplinary Proceedings Against Arthur, 2005 WI 40, ¶78, 279 Wis. 2d 583, 694 N.W.2d 910. Because Attorney Carranza petitioned for the consensual revocation of his Wisconsin law license before the appointment of a referee, and because the OLR has not requested the imposition of costs, we do not assess the costs of this disciplinary proceeding against Attorney Carranza.”
