Disciplinary Actions Taken by the
Board on Professional Responsibility
Original Matters
In re James C. Bailey. Bar No. 462391. October
27, 2023. The Board on Professional Responsibility
recommended that the D.C. Court of
Appeals disbar Bailey by consent for violations
of Rule 1.15(a).
In re Mehak Naveed. Bar No. 1032942. November
27, 2023. The Board on Professional
Responsibility recommended that the D.C.
Court of Appeals suspend Naveed for six
months with fitness for violations of Rules
3.3(a)(1), 3.4(a), 3.4(c), 8.1(a), 8.1(b), 8.4(c), and
8.4(d), stemming from Disciplinary Counsel's
investigation of Naveed's trust account overdraft.
For more than 30 months, Naveed delayed
in providing basic information during
the investigation and provided knowingly
false excuses for her delays. When faced with
contempt proceedings in D.C. Superior Court,
Naveed repeatedly lied to the judge over the
course of seven hearings. After Disciplinary
Counsel filed charges, her pattern of misconduct
continued before the Hearing Committee
by failing to meet deadlines, failing to
timely appear at the hearing, and giving intentionally
false testimony.
The Office of Disciplinary Counsel compiled the
foregoing summaries of disciplinary actions. Visit
