They probably did something unethical and the Bar took their license. Without more info one can only speculate on the exact reason. Suffice to say, it takes something really bad for that to happen.

Obama lied on his liscence application, MO had to drop her law liscense by court order.

Without more information there is no way to really answer that question.


Hay. You think I'm crazy? You should hear the voices in my head. Those people have issues.

Sleeping with a client is a good way.

Addiction is another.

But just like ac said, you have not provided us with sufficient information to give you a good answer.

Gratitude as a discipline involves a conscious choice.....* Victims of circumstance owe it to fate. Victims of choice owe it to themselves.*One of the widest gaps in human experience is the gap between what we say we want to be and our willingness to discipline ourselves to get there.

Abuse of the law any which way you look at it!

There are any number of disciplinary causes to censure, limit, or disbar attorneys.  Any willful breach of ethics or failure to work professionally is suitable cause to move the Bar Association to act.

My driver's license MAY be suspended, how do I find out?

You can go to the motor vehicle department. If you think it is, you should have gotten something from them or a court order. You need to go there and check.They wont tell you over the phone.

License suspension

I doubt it, unless you've got some messed-up laws where you live. They can take you to small claims court, they can hold your vehicle, but non-payment to a private company is not exactly a criminal issue.
