Disciplinary sanction orders are entered against an attorney or LPP by the Utah Supreme Court either through its direct ruling, or as delegated to the State District Courts or the Supreme Court’s Ethics and Discipline Committee, pursuant to the Rules of Lawyer Discipline and Disability. The document that you will be searching contains discipline summaries of the above described orders previously published in the Utah Bar Journal Discipline Corner on attorneys or LPPs who are either currently or previously licensed in Utah. You will note that there is only specific identifying information (i.e., name, etc.) where the case(s) involve public orders of discipline. There is no identifying information on private forms of discipline (such as a private admonition). Private discipline is not a matter of public record and remains confidential.

The document you will be searching only includes discipline summaries from 1988 to the date of the most recent Utah Bar Journal, which are published every two months. Furthermore, there is usually a two to four month lag period from when a discipline order is entered to when its summary will be reflected in the Bar Journal. This timeframe limitation means the document that you are searching may not include every attorney or LPP who has discipline.

Please note that disability is not a form of discipline. Nonetheless, attorneys or LPPs who have been transferred to disability may be part of the summaries. Attorneys or LPPs suspended for non-payment of dues or failure to comply with CLE requirements are not part of the summaries. Please contact the Utah State Bar at (801) 531-9077 for information on those attorneys or LPPs.

If an attorney or LPP has been placed on probation, suspended or disbarred and is subsequently reinstated or readmitted, this will not be reflected in the summaries. If you have a question about possible reinstatement or readmission you can contact the OPC.

The information being searched is provided “as is” with no warranty of any kind, express or implied. Every effort has been made to ensure the accuracy of the information within the limits outlined in this disclaimer. Neither the OPC, its oversight committee, nor its volunteers or any employee thereof may be held responsible for the accuracy of the data. Please check carefully to be sure that you have selected the correct attorney or LPP. Attorneys and LPPs may have similar names. The OPC is not responsible for any coincidence in names of disciplined attorneys or LPPs and of members in good standing as a result of individuals having identical names.

If you find any inaccurate information, have any questions, or would like information about an attorney’s or LPP’s public disciplinary history outside of the timeframes provided in this disclaimer, please contact the OPC.

One Final Note:

All complaints, information, investigations and private discipline are confidential. As such the OPC is not able to confirm or deny that anything has been filed against an attorney or LPP, that an attorney or LPP is being investigated for an alleged violation of the Utah Rules of Professional Conduct, or that an attorney or LPP has received private discipline.
