Justices reinstate Milwaukee attorney after 10-month suspension

The state Supreme Court on Wednesday reinstated Jeffrey Reitz’s license to practice law after a 10-month suspension for violating trust account rules.

The Milwaukee attorney has been disciplined two other times. His license was suspended for 90 days in 2009 and for five months in 2005.

Reitz was licensed to practice law in Wisconsin in 1981 and graduated from Marquette University Law School. He could not be reached for comment Wednesday.

Reitz filed his petition for reinstatement Feb. 11, 2014. The Office of Lawyer Regulation did not oppose the petition but recommended that, in order for him to be reinstated, his trust account must be monitored for two years and he must be supervised by an attorney or monitored by a bankruptcy attorney.

The justices agreed with the first condition but found the second condition unnecessary, according to their decision, in agreement with a referee’s report and recommendations.

The court also ordered, in agreement with the OLR, that Reitz must pay $2,701.40, the full cost of the proceeding.
