Md. Court of Appeals suspends city lawyer

March 25, 2002

The Maryland Court of Appeals has suspended the law license of a Baltimore lawyer for at least six months after finding that he failed to deliver on agreements to represent clients.

William Michael Monfried charged one client for doing little or no work and neglected another client, according to the ruling.

His lawyer, Gregg L. Bernstein, characterized the incidents as misunderstandings between clients and Monfried, whose career has been as a Baltimore prosecutor and defense attorney.

The ruling allows Monfried to reapply to practice law after six months.

Bernstein said he expects Monfried will seek reinstatement.
