On Tuesday, June 20, 2023, the Supreme Court of Iowa suspended Hampton attorney Gina Angela Jorgensen for failure to respond to the Attorney Disciplinary Board’s inquiry in relation to a complaint alleging Jorgensen of abandonment of law practice.

The case is titled “Iowa Supreme Court Attorney Disciplinary Board vs. Fina Angela Jorgensen,” case no, 23-0696.

According to court documents, Jorgensen was indefinitely suspended by a February 28, 2023 order of the court upon findings that Jorgensen abandoned her law practice, thus, unable to carry out her professional obligations related to the practice of law.

The Board filed a certificate advising the court of Jorgensen’s failure to respond to the Board’s notice within the time allotted. Thereafter, on May 2, 2023, the Supreme Court Clerk notified Jorgensen that her license would be suspended unless she would cause the Board to withdraw its certificate within 20 days of the date of issuance of said notice. The 20-day period has passed, but Tomlinson failed to respond.

In view of the foregoing facts, the court ruled against Jorgensen.

The Order reads:

“1. The license of Gina Angela Jorgensen to practice law in the State of Iowa is suspended, effective 10 days from the date of this order.

2. This suspension will continue until such time as Jorgensen pays the reinstatement fee at the Office of Professional Regulation, the Board files a withdrawal of the certificate, and the court enters an order reinstating respondent’s license to practice law in this matter.

3. Jorgensen must comply with the notification provisions of Iowa Court Rule 34.24 to the extent required by Iowa Court Rules 35.7(3)(g) and (h).”

Prior to the suspension, Ms. Gina Angela Jorgensen practiced at Hampton as a business attorney. She attended the University of Denver, Sturm College of Law, class of 2000. Ms. Jorgensen has been licensed in Iowa. Her online bio can be found on Avvo.
