On January 3, 2023, the Office of the Presiding Disciplinary Judge of the Colorado Supreme Court announced the reinstatement of Highlands Ranch Attorney Stacy B. Spurlock.

On June 22, 2017, Spurlock was suspended from the practice of law for one year and one day, following a sanctions hearing. The suspension arose from Spurlock’s misconduct in her representation of a client in an estate litigation matter, and nonpayment of past-due invoices sent by a process server whom Spurlock hired to serve documents in a case. She allegedly violated Colorado Rules of Professional Conduct governing diligence, communication with clients, termination of representation, disobedience to an obligation under the rules of a tribunal, unauthorized practice of law, and conduct prejudicial to the administration of justice.

The 2017 suspension order provided that Spurlock will have to prove by clear and convincing evidence that she has been rehabilitated, has complied with disciplinary orders and rules, and is fit to practice law. Spurlok’s reinstatement was conditioned upon an independent medical examination showing that she is capable of practicing law.

According to the court filing, Spurlock sought reinstatement and the parties had stipulated that Spurlock has been rehabilitated and has complied with the suspension order.

In light of the foregoing, the Presiding Judge approved the parties’ stipulation and ordered Spurlock’s reinstatement to the practice of law in the state of Colorado.

As of today, Ms. Stacy B. Spurlock practices in Highlands Ranch. She has been admitted to the Colorado bar in 2003, according to Avvo.
