Board Report and Orders (October 7, 2020)

Summary: In re Alvin S. Brown. Bar No. 263681. October 7, 2020. The Board on Professional Responsibility recommended that the D.C. Court of Appeals suspend Brown for 60 days with the requirements that he pay the client $4,000 in restitution (plus 6 percent interest since January 9, 2019) and that he prove his fitness prior to resuming the practice of law. Specifically, while retained to represent a client with a New York tax issue, Brown’s representation of the client was not competent. He neglected (and intentionally neglected) the client’s case, failed to adequately communicate with the client, charged an unreasonable fee, did not put an unearned fee in his trust account, and failed to return an unearned fee to the client, in violation of Rules 1.1(a), 1.3(a), 1.3(b)(1), 1.3(c), 1.4(a), 1.5(a), 1.15(e), and 1.16(d).
