Cincinnati attorney’s petition for reinstatement accepted by Ohio Supreme Court

Cincinnati attorney’s petition for reinstatement accepted by Ohio Supreme Court

On Friday, January 13, 2023, the Supreme Court of Ohio ordered the reinstatement of Cincinnati attorney Andrew Thomas Burgess.

The case is styled Cincinnati Bar Assn. v. Burgess and was brought by Andrew Thomas Burgess, under case no. 2019-1457.

According to the filing, on November 22, 2019, the Court placed Burgess on interim default suspension and ordered that Burgess’ reinstatement to law practice be conditioned upon demonstrating that he has complied with the November 22, 2019 order and upon submission of additional proof that he had undergone an Ohio Lawyers Assistance Program evaluation, had followed any treatment or counseling recommendations resulting from that evaluation, and had paid the costs of the proceedings.

Burgess’ November 22, 2019, interim default suspension stemmed from the Cincinnati Bar Association’s complaint filed with the Board of Professional Conduct alleging violation of the Rules of Professional Conduct governing diligence, communication with a client, terminating representation, and misconduct.

The Court, having found that Burgess has complied with the Order and with the provisions of Supreme Court Rules for the Government of the Bar of Ohio V(24), ruled in favor of Burgees and granted his petition for reinstatement.

As of today, Mr. Burgees practices in Cincinnati, Ohio with The Burgees Law Firm LLC. According to Avvo, Mr. Burgess graduated from the University of Cincinnati. He has been licensed in Ohio, license no. 0094128.
