An attorney from New Mexico faces discipline in Wisconsin after he was publicly reprimanded in Maine.
The Office of Lawyer Regulation filed a complaint Jan. 29 asking the Wisconsin Supreme Court to impose discipline reciprocal to what Bradford Borman received in Maine.
On Oct. 5, Maine’s Grievance Commission publicly reprimanded Borman, whose Maine license had already been suspended there in October 2014 for failing to report continuing legal education requirements, according to the complaint.
The reprimand stemmed from Borman’s failure to file an affidavit showing that he notified clients, opposing counsel, attorneys and courts that his Maine law license had been suspended, and his failure to respond to Maine’s disciplinary authorities.
Wisconsin’s OLR also alleges that Borman failed to notify it that he had been publicly reprimanded in Maine. Wisconsin Supreme Court Rules for Professional Attorney Conduct require attorneys to report out-of-state discipline to the OLR within 20 days of it being imposed.
Borman, who graduated from Arizona State University’s Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law, was admitted to the Wisconsin bar in 2001. He was admitted to practice in Maine in 2007. According to the complaint, he resides in Albuquerque, N.M., although he has a Maine address listed with the State Bar and OLR websites.
Borman could not be immediately reached at any of the phone numbers or email addresses listed with the OLR, Wisconsin State Bar and the Maine Board of Overseers of the Bar.
His Wisconsin license has been suspended for failing to pay dues and for failure to report completing continuing legal education requirements. Follow @erikastrebel
