Professional Responsibility – Suspension

Where attorney John F. Koenig accepted payment for work performed for his firm’s clients, without notifying the firm of the payments, a two-year suspension is appropriate.

“We adopt the referee’s findings of fact and conclusions of law that Attorney Koenig violated the supreme court rules as alleged in Count One of the OLR’s complaint. We also agree with the referee that a two-year suspension of Attorney Koenig’s license is an appropriate sanction for the misconduct at issue here. A two-year suspension is consistent with the level of discipline imposed in somewhat similar cases. See, e.g., In re Disciplinary Proceedings Against Cotter, 171 Wis. 2d 373, 491 N.W.2d 475 (1992).”
