On Monday, December 11, 2023, the Supreme Court of Ohio suspended Attorney Anthony Edward Kohler from practicing law in the state for an interim period after he was convicted of a felony.
The case is titled ‘In the Matter of Anthony Edward Kohler,’ with case no. 2023-Ohio-4460.
The state’s highest court certified an entry of Kohler’s felony conviction filed on December 7th by the director of the Board of Professional Conduct. The court then suspended Kohler from practice on an interim basis, effective immediately.
The order referred the matter to disciplinary counsel for further investigation and the start of disciplinary proceedings against Kohler. He was required to cease practicing law, appearing in court, advising clients, and handling client money by December 11th. Kohler must also complete continuing legal education requirements and cannot be reinstated until he follows the Supreme Court’s rules for reinstatement.
Attorney Kholer’s suspension will remain in effect pending the outcome of the ongoing disciplinary investigation by the Board of Professional Conduct.
The disposition reads:
“Upon consideration thereof and pursuant to Gov.Bar R. V(18)(A)(4), it is ordered and decreed that respondent, Anthony Edward Kohler, Attorney Registration No. 0032826, last known business address in Springfield, Ohio, is suspended from the practice of law for an interim period, effective as of the date of this entry.”
