Violation of Florida Rules 4-1.1 and 4-1.7(B)
In Florida Bar v. Maurice, 955 So. 2d 535 (Fla. 2007), the evidence supported the recommendation that the respondent had violated rules 4-1.1 and 4-1.7(b). 955 So. 2d at 540.
Those two rule violations, in conjunction with two aggravating factors--vulnerability of the victim and substantial experience in the practice of law--and one mitigating factor--absence of a prior disciplinary record--warranted a ninety-day suspension. Id. at 542.
Significantly, in Maurice there was no violation of rules 4-8.4(c) and 4-8.4(d). Id. at 537-38.
