The case is entitled “In the Matter of David L. Coleman, II,” and was brought by the Office of the Disciplinary Counsel with case no. 2023-B-00695.
Louisiana attorney David L. Coleman, II has been suspended from the practice of law for six months due to mismanagement of his client’s trust account, which led to the negligent commingling and conversion of funds.
The Supreme Court of Louisiana accepted a joint petition for consent discipline filed by Coleman and the Office of Disciplinary Counsel.

Moreover, the court also mentioned that Coleman is also responsible for all costs and expenses related to the disciplinary proceedings.
