Two Virginia lawyers suspended

A Norfolk attorney pled guilty today to a misdemeanor charge of attempting to illegally obtain a controlled substance, Vicodin, according to this report. He has agreed to an indefinite suspension of his law license. A Herndon lawyer suspended this week by the Virginia State Bar for two and one-half years "attributed his difficulties to 'office management problems,' adding: 'It's an embarrassing thing. But it's good for everyone involved, and I think I need to take a break from the practice of law. I'm a little burned out,'" as quoted in this Washington Post story.
