Disciplinary Actions Taken
by the Board on Professional

Original Matters
In re Edward Gonzalez. Bar
No. 426584. October 24, 2018.

The Board on Professional
Responsibility recommends that
the D.C. Court of Appeals suspend
Gonzalez for one year with
fitness. While retained to represent a husband and wife in a
bankruptcy matter, Gonzalez
failed to explain matters to the
extent reasonably necessary to
permit his clients to make
informed decisions regarding the
representation, failed to take
timely steps to the extent reasonably practicable to protect his
clients' interests in connection
with the termination of representation, and engaged in conduct
that seriously interfered with the
administration of justice. Rules
1.4(b), 1.16(d), and 8.4(d).

The Board on Professional
Responsibility recommends

that the D.C. Court of Appeals
disbar McLeod by consent.

342444. October 23, 2018. The
Board on Professional Responsibility
recommends that the D.C. Court of
Appeals suspend Salgado for 30
days with fitness and further recommends that the period of suspension imposed in this case not
be considered as precedent in
future cases. Salgado engaged in
commingling and failed to keep
adequate records of his handling
of entrusted funds. Rule 1.5(a) and
D.C. Bar R. XI ยง 19(f).

No. 985903. October 29, 2018.
