On Wednesday, January 24, 2024, the Supreme Court of the State of Louisiana suspended attorney Christopher D. Granger from practicing law for six months, deferred in its entirety, subject to a one-year period of probation

The case is entitled “In the Matter of Christopher D. Granger,” with case no. 2023-B-01468.

According to the filing, Granger neglected a client’s legal matter, failed to communicate with the client, and inappropriately tried to settle a malpractice claim. As part of the discipline, Granger’s law license will be suspended for six months, but that suspension will be deferred for one year, during which time he will be on probation and must attend and pass the Louisiana State Bar Association’s Ethics School within the year.

If Granger fails to comply with the conditions of his probation or commits any misconduct during the probationary period, the Court said the deferred suspension could be made active, or additional discipline could be imposed. Granger was also ordered to pay all costs associated with the disciplinary case.

According to avvo.com, Mr. Granger is an attorney in Grand Coteau, Louisiana. He acquired his law license in Louisiana in 2013.
