WI Court of Supreme Court

Case Name: Office of Lawyer Regulation v. Matthew T. Luening

Case No.: 2020AP002166-D


Focus: Attorney Disciplinary

This matter returns to the court following remand to Referee James J. Winiarski.

Attorney Matthew Luening was admitted to practice law in Wisconsin in 2010 and practices in Milwaukee. His disciplinary history consists of two consensual public reprimands.

On December 29, 2020, the Office of Lawyer Regulation (OLR) filed a complaint against Attorney Luening, alleging twelve counts of misconduct. Seven of those counts arose out of Attorney Luening’s practice before an immigration tribunal. Attorney Winiarski was appointed referee. During the pendency of the case, the referee granted summary judgment in favor of OLR on one count of misconduct, and OLR dismissed one count. Following an evidentiary hearing, the referee issued a report finding that OLR met its burden of proof with respect to six of the counts of misconduct alleged in the complaint, including three of the immigration-based counts. The referee recommended a six-month suspension of Attorney Luening’s license to practice law.
