Indiana Lawyer Disciplinary Actions

The Indiana Supreme Court Disciplinary Commission brings charges against attorneys who have violated the state’s rules for admission to the bar and Rules of Professional Conduct. The Indiana Commission on Judicial Qualifications brings charges against judges, judicial officers, or judicial candidates for misconduct. Details of attorneys’ and judges’ actions for which they are being disciplined by the Supreme Court will be included unless they are not a matter of public record under the court’s rules.

In separate orders dated Sept. 27, 2013, the Indiana Supreme Court suspended the following attorneys for failure to pay costs assessed in a disciplinary action by the due date of the attorney’s annual registration fee: Delmar Kuchaes, of Whiteland; Robert E. Love, of Fort Wayne; and Steve L. Brejensky, of New York, NY.

A “Petition for Suspension of Attorney for Failure to Satisfy Costs Ordered in Connection with Certain Proceedings under Indiana Admission and Discipline Rule 23” was filed by the Supreme Court Disciplinary Commission for each attorney on Aug. 2, 2013. No responses to the commission’s petitions were filed.

Suspensions for each attorney take effect 10 days from the date of the order. After fulfilling the duties of a suspended attorney under Admission and Discipline Rule 23(26), each may file an application for reinstatement to the practice of law pursuant to Admission and Discipline Rule (2)(h), provided the requirements of that provision are met.•
