The Maryland Supreme Court issued a reprimand to attorney Henry Mark Bobotek on January 19, 2024, according to an Order.
The case is entitled “Attorney Grievance Commission of Maryland v. Henry Mark Bobotek,” with case no. 31
The reprimand stems from a joint petition submitted by the Attorney Grievance Commission of Maryland and Mr. Bobotek. In the petition, the parties advised the Court that Mr. Bobotek agreed that his conduct violated Rules 1.1 and 1.15 of the Maryland Attorneys’ Rules of Professional Conduct and Section 14.5-810 of the Estates and Trusts Article regarding proper handling of client funds.
The Order, signed by Chief Judge Matthew J. Fader, officially reprimanded Mr. Bobotek and ordered him to pay costs of $1,114.65 associated with the misconduct case. While the Court document does not provide specifics of Mr. Bobotek’s violations, the reprimand and costs payment suggest the Court found issues with his legal representation and management of client funds.
According to avvo.com, Mr. Bobotek is an elder law attorney in Ellicott City, Maryland. He attended the George Mason University School of Law. He acquired his law license in Maryland in 1991.
