On Wednesday, February 14, 2024, the Supreme Court of the State of Louisiana publicly reprimanded attorney Jeremy Zivko Soso.

The case is entitled “In the Matter of Jeremy Zivko Soso,” with case no. 2023-B-01556.

The charges cited Louisiana Rules of Professional Conduct 1.4, 1.16(d), 3.2, and 8.4(a).

According to the Court’s ruling, the Office of Disciplinary Counsel had investigated Soso over allegations that he failed to communicate with two clients, expedite litigation in a timely manner, provide a client’s file upon request, and obtain a client’s written consent for including co-counsel in a contingency fee agreement. These actions were said to violate several Rules of Professional Conduct.

The Court accepted a joint petition for consent discipline submitted by Soso and the ODC. As a result, Soso received a public reprimand for his misconduct. He was also ordered to complete the next available session of the Louisiana State Bar Association’s Ethics School. All costs and expenses related to the matter will be assessed against Soso, with legal interest accruing thirty days from the date of the Court’s final judgment.

The Disposition states:

“IT IS ORDERED that the Petition for Consent Discipline be accepted and that Jeremy Zivko Soso, Louisiana Bar Roll number 3 1974, be publicly reprimanded. It is further ordered that the respondent shall complete the next available session of the Louisiana State Bar Association’s Ethics School.”
