Pinedale Attorney Suspended
by Wyoming State Bar
May 30, 2006
Pinedale attorney Ken McLaughlin was suspended for one year from the date of his Order of Interim Suspension, September 21, 2005, by order of the Wyoming Supreme Court on May 31, 2006.
McLaughlin failed to provide competent legal services in a timely fashion and to properly communicate with his clients in two cases which violated Rules 1.1, 1.3 and 1.4 of the Wyoming Rules of Professional Conduct.
McLaughlin stipulated to these facts and consented to this discipline. The Board of Professional Responsibility approved the stipulation, recommending that the Wyoming Supreme Court place Mr. McLaughlin on suspension. After reviewing the record and recommendation, the Wyoming Supreme Court entered its order suspending McLaughlin for one year from the date of its interim suspension order. The Order also required McLaughlin to pay some of the costs of the Wyoming State Bar for prosecuting these matters.
