The ARDC has charged a lawyer with practicing while suspended

BEFORE THE HEARING BOARD:

The ARDC charges that a lawyer was suspended in January 2014, but that he continued to collect fees on a foreclosure matter. Further the lawyer failed to inform the client that he was suspended. The ARDC also charged the lawyer with a violation of Rule 8.4(c) for allegedly charging and collecting legal fees for the period in which he was suspended.

Illinois Supreme Court Rule 764 governs the conduct of lawyers who are suspended from the practice of law.
