On Thursday, August 17, 2023, the Supreme Court of Florida issued an order granting the petition for disciplinary revocation of attorney Kyle Charles Young’s license to practice law.

The case is entitled “In the Matter of Kyle Charles,” with case no. SC2023-0846.

On June 9, 2023, Kyle Charles Young submitted a petition for disciplinary revocation with leave to apply for readmission after five years. The petition stated that Young knowingly and voluntarily submitted this petition with full knowledge of its effect.

Young, who had been a member of The Florida Bar since October 31, 2008, and was subject to the jurisdiction of the Supreme Court of Florida and the Rules Regulating The Florida Bar, had no prior disciplinary history. However, he had one pending disciplinary matter at the staff level. Young agreed to reimburse the Client Security Fund (CSF) for any and all funds CSF had paid or might pay out for claims resulting from his misconduct. He also agreed to reimburse The Florida Bar for the costs incurred in his disciplinary cases. Additionally, Young agreed to submit to a complete audit of any trust accounts and any other account in which he had placed client funds.

In response, the Florida Bar’s Board of Governors considered the petition at its July 2023 meeting and supported it. Contemporaneously with this response, the bar filed a motion to assess costs, requesting that the court award those costs to the bar. The bar respectfully requested that the court grant the petition for disciplinary revocation with leave to apply for readmission and award costs to the bar.

Based on these foregoing matters, the Supreme Court of Florida issued an order granting the petition for disciplinary revocation of Young.  Young was also directed to comply with certain rules regulating The Florida Bar and to accept no new business until he is readmitted.

The court awarded costs of $1,281.50 to The Florida Bar. The revocation will take effect once the order is filed, and a motion for rehearing shall not alter the effective date of the revocation. Young may seek readmission to The Florida Bar after five years, subject to the continuing jurisdiction of the court.

The Disposition states:

“The uncontested petition for disciplinary revocation, as provided by Rule 3-7.12, Rules Regulating The Florida Bar, with leave to seek readmission after five years, is granted subject to the continuing jurisdiction of this Court.”

According to avvo.com, Mr. Young practiced as a litigation attorney in Palm Beach, Florida prior to the revocation of his license. He attended the Thomas M. Cooley Law School, graduating in 2008. He acquired his law license in Florida in 2008.
