ATTORNEY GRIEVANCE COMM'N v. LEVIN, Robert

Issue: What sanction should be imposed upon a lawyer who ignored a writ of garnishment filed by a judgment creditor against his client?

Holding: Considering the attorney's previously spotless career, cooperation with the Attorney Grievance Commission, his unselfish motives and remedial action, the Court of Appeals held that a public reprimand was the appropriate sanction.

Alleged Violations: Rules 1.15(d) and (e) and 3.4(c).

Citation: 432 Md. 429, 69 A.3d 451 (2013)
