On Friday, April 5, 2024, the Indiana Supreme Court issued an order suspending Andrew J. Jacobs from practicing law in the state due to noncooperation with a disciplinary investigation.

The case is entitled “In the Matter of Andrew J. Jacobs,” with case no. 23S-DI-375.

The court document revealed that Jacobs failed to respond to an earlier order to show cause as to why he shouldn’t be suspended for not cooperating with the investigation of a grievance filed against him. He also did not file a response to the Commission’s request for a ruling and cost assessment.

As a result, the court suspended Jacobs from practicing law effective immediately. The suspension will remain in effect until the Executive Director of the Disciplinary Commission confirms that Jacobs has fully cooperated with their investigation or until the Supreme Court issues another order.

The court also noted that Jacobs was already suspended for nonpayment of dues and failure to fulfill continuing legal education requirements. He must adhere to duties assigned to suspended attorneys as well. Furthermore, Jacobs was instructed to pay $534.60 to reimburse the Commission for expenses related to his case.
