MKE attorney behaving badly

The court said accepted a referee’s finding that D’Arruda, 47, had engaged in more than 40 instances of professional misconduct, primarily accepting advance fees in cases in which he later did little or no work, including several cases he took when he knew his license was about to be temporarily suspended in 2014.

According to the court’s decision, D’Arruda never responded to the Officer of Lawyer Regulation complaints against him, and was therefore found in default. In addition to the three-year suspension, D’Arrude [sic] was ordered to pay $6,500 restitution to some clients, and more than $2,300 in costs.
