Attorney Disciplinary Proceedings.

Byline: Derek Hawkins

WI Supreme Court

Case Name: Office of Lawyer Regulation v. Ryan P. Thompson

Case No.: 2018 WI 97

Focus: Attorney Disciplinary Proceedings

We review the report and recommendation of Referee James W. Mohr, Jr., concluding that Attorney Ryan P. Thompson committed 16 counts of professional misconduct and recommending the court suspend his law license for 15 months, order him to pay restitution to one client, A.K., and impose the costs of this proceeding on him.

Upon careful review of this matter, we uphold the referee's findings of fact and conclusions of law and agree that a 15-month suspension is an appropriate sanction for Attorney Thompson's misconduct. We further agree that Attorney Thompson should pay restitution to A.K. in the amount of $1,000. We also find it appropriate to impose the full costs of this proceeding on Attorney Thompson, which are $7,370.73 as of August 24, 2018.
