On Friday, April 21, 2023, the Supreme Court of Maryland ruled on the Petition for Disciplinary or Remedial Action filed by the Attorney Grievance Commission against Rockville attorney Jason Michael Winter in relation to the latter’s conviction of a serious crime.
The case is titled ‘Attorney Grievance Commission of Maryland v. Jason Michael Winter.’
According to the filing, the Court required the Commission to serve the Petition on Winter and required Winter to show cause why he should not be temporarily suspended from the practice of law in the State of Maryland. However, Winter did not file a response to the order to show cause.
Based on the foregoing facts, the Court ruled in favor of the petition and ordered the temporary suspension of Winter in relation to his conviction.
The disposition reads:
“ORDERED that, pursuant to Rule 19-738(e) and effective immediately, respondent Jason Michael Winter is temporarily suspended from the practice of law in the State of Maryland pending further order of this Court; and it is further. . .
ORDERED that the Clerk of this Court shall strike the name of Jason Michael Winter from the register of attorneys authorized to practice law in the State of Maryland and shall certify the fact to the Client Protection Fund of the Bar of Maryland and all Clerks of all judicial tribunals in this State in accordance with Maryland Rule 19-76(b).”
Prior to the suspension, Mr. Winter practiced in Rockville, Maryland. Winter has been licensed to practice in Maryland. His info can be found on Avvo.
