The Wisconsin Supreme Court on Thursday suspended Iowa attorney David Lemanski’s license to practice law for 60 days.
The discipline stems from a 2013 Iowa Supreme Court decision in which Lemanski’s license was suspended on two counts of misconduct. The Office of Lawyer Regulation filed a complaint August 29, 2014, seeking the same penalty in Wisconsin, to which the justices agreed.
Lemanski’s suspension resulted from delays in disbursing a personal injury client’s settlement. The Iowa Supreme Court found him guilty of failure to properly communicate with a client and failure to respond to a demand for information from the Iowa Supreme Court Attorney Disciplinary Board.
Lemanski was admitted to practice law in Wisconsin in 2002 and in Iowa in 1979, according to court documents. He has been professionally disciplined three other times, according to the OLR’s complaint.Follow @erikastrebel
