A referee is recommending that an Oshkosh lawyer be suspended for 90 days.
The recommendations stem from a complaint the OLR filed last year against Melinda Alfredson of Clausen Law, a firm out of Oshkosh. The agency charged her with breaking six attorney-ethics rules while handling two divorce cases.
In the complaint, the OLR asked the Wisconsin Supreme Court to suspend Alfredson’s license for 4 months.
In a stipulation with the OLR, Alfredson eventually admitted to all of the alleged charges of misconduct. The parties also agreed to modify three of the charges and to impose on Alfredson a 90-day suspension, as well as the costs of the proceeding.
The referee in the case, Nicholas Schweitzer, recommended in October that the justices adopt the stipulation.
The justices will review Schweitzer’s recommendation and issue a final decision in the matter.Follow @erikastrebel
