On Thursday, April 13, 2023, the District of Columbia Court of Appeals ordered the disbarment of North Carolina attorney Peter C. Anderson in consideration of the certified order from the state of North Carolina disbarring Anderson from law practice in that jurisdiction.

The case is styled ‘In Re Peter C. Anderson’ and was brought by the Disciplinary Counsel under case #2022-152.

According to the filing, on February 24, 2023, the Court suspended Anderson pending disposition of the proceeding and ordered him to show cause why reciprocal discipline should not be imposed. Thereafter, Anderson filed his affidavit stating that he does not object to reciprocal disbarment.

Anderson’s disbarment in North Carolina resulted from the voluntary surrender of his law license. This decision came after allegations that he misused $54,024.67 in legal fees intended for his former law firm, which was part of the settlement for a personal injury case, according to the October 12, 2022, report of the Office of Counsel to the North Carolina State Bar Council.

Based on the foregoing facts, the District of Columbia Court of Appeals imposed a reciprocal discipline.

The order reads:

“ORDERED that Peter C. Anderson is hereby disbarred from the practice of law in the District of Columbia, nunc pro tunc to March 8, 2023. In addition to other requirements for reinstatement, Mr. Anderson must be reinstated by the state of North Carolina prior to filing a petition for reinstatement in this jurisdiction.”

Mr. Anderson practiced in Charlotte, North Carolina. He graduated from the University of Virginia School of Law, class of 1991. He has been admitted in North Carolina and the District of Columbia. Anderson’s info can be found on LinkedIn.
