Attorney Disciplinary Hearing.

Byline: Derek Hawkins

WI Supreme Court

Case Name: Office of Lawyer Regulation v. Melinda Alfredson

Case No.: 2019 WI 17

Focus: Attorney Disciplinary Hearing

We review the report of the referee, Attorney John Nicholas Schweitzer, recommending that the court suspend the Wisconsin law license of Attorney Melinda Alfredson for 90 days and order her to pay the full costs of this disciplinary proceeding. The referee wrote the report after Attorney Alfredson and the Office of Lawyer Regulation (OLR) entered into a stipulation concerning Attorney Alfredson's misconduct in two client matters and her failure to cooperate with the OLR's investigation into her misconduct. Neither party has appealed from the referee's report and recommendation, and thus our review proceeds under Supreme Court Rule (SCR) 22.17(2).

We agree that Attorney Alfredson's professional misconduct warrants a 90-day suspension. We further agree that Attorney Alfredson should pay the full costs of this matter, which total $2,649.59 as of November 15, 2018. No restitution was sought and none is ordered.
