The Wisconsin Supreme Court is set to announce punishment this week for a Milwaukee attorney accused of ignoring two of his clients.
The Office of Lawyer Regulation asked for a 60-day suspension for Benjamin Harris, a solo practitioner at Benjamin Harris JD. A complaint filed in July charged Harris with four counts of misconduct related to failing to communicate with his clients and failing to take the appropriate action in their cases.
The court’s decision in Harris’ disciplinary case is scheduled for release on Tuesday.
His previous disciplinary history includes two suspensions, a public reprimand and two private reprimands. The state Supreme Court dismissed an OLR complaint against Harris in 2017, citing “apparent incongruities in the definitional and substance rules” related to the treatment of fees.
Harris was admitted to the State Bar of Wisconsin in 1996.Follow @“WLJreporter”
