RE: Administrative Suspensions for Failure to Comply with Continuing Legal Education Requirements




The South Carolina Commission on Continuing Legal Education and Specialization has furnished the attached list of lawyers who have failed to file reports showing compliance with continuing legal education or who have failed to pay the filing fee or any penalty required for the report of compliance, for the reporting year ending in February 2023.  Pursuant to Rule 419(d)(2), SCACR, these lawyers are hereby suspended from the practice of law.  They shall surrender their certificates to practice law in this State to the Clerk of this Court by May 26, 2023.

Any petition or reinstatement must be made in the manner specified by Rule 419(e), SCACR.  Additionally, if they have not verified their information in the Attorney Information System, they shall do so prior to seeking reinstatement.

These lawyers are warned that any continuation of the practice of law in this State after being suspended by this order is the unauthorized practice of law, and will subject them to disciplinary action under Rule 413, SCACR, and could result in a finding of criminal or civil contempt by this Court.  Further, any lawyer who is aware of any violation of this suspension shall report the matter to the Office of Disciplinary Counsel.  Rule 8.3, Rules of Professional Conduct for Lawyers, Rule 407, SCACR.
