On January 12, 2024, the Supreme Court of Ohio issued an order indefinitely suspending Port Clinton attorney Amanda Ann-Carmen Andrews from the practice of law.

The case is entitled “Disciplinary Counsel v. Andrews,” with case no. 2023-0974.

The disciplinary action stemmed from Ms. Andrews’ failure to respond to formal charges filed by Disciplinary Counsel on August 4, 2023. As a result of the default, on August 31, 2023, the court imposed an interim default suspension.

The parties were ordered to show cause by September 9, 2023 as to why the interim suspension should not be converted to an indefinite suspension. However, no objections were received by the deadline.

Therefore, in its January 12, 2024 ruling, the Supreme Court converted Andrews’ interim suspension, which had been in place since August 31, 2023, into an indefinite suspension. This ban on practicing law will remain in effect going forward.

The court specified that within 30 days of January 12, 2024, Andrews must notify clients and opposing counsel of her suspension. She is also required to complete one credit hour of continuing legal education to satisfy her ongoing education requirements.

According to avvo.com, Ms. Amanda Ann-Carmen Andrews is a personal injury attorney in Port Clinton, Ohio. She attended the University of Detroit Mercy. She acquired her law license in Ohio in 2012.
