On Tuesday, January 2, 2024, the Michigan Attorney Discipline Board Tri-County Hearing Panel #53 suspended attorney Julie D. Anderson on an interim basis after she failed to appear for a disciplinary hearing on December 12, 2023.

The case is entitled “In the Matter of Julie D. Anderson,” with case numbers 23-75-JC and 23-76-GA.

According to a Notice of Interim Suspension, Anderson did not show up for the hearing regarding two pending disciplinary cases.

The panel stated that Anderson had received actual notice of the proceedings based on proofs entered into the record. As a result, the panel ordered that Anderson be suspended from practicing law in accordance with Michigan Court Rule 9.115(H)(1), which allows for an interim suspension when a respondent fails to appear at a scheduled hearing.

The suspension of Anderson’s law license will remain in effect on an interim basis until either the hearing panel or the Attorney Discipline Board issues an order modifying or lifting the suspension.

According to avvo.com, Ms. Anderson is an elder law attorney in Ferndale, Michigan. She acquired her law license in Michigan in 2001.
