On Wednesday, June 21, 2023, the Supreme Court of Maryland ordered the reinstatement of attorney Evan J. Krame following the end of his suspension in relation to the District of Columbia 53-page court order suspending him from the practice of law for violating an obligation to a tribunal and misappropriation of client funds.

The case is titled “In the Matter of the Petition for Reinstatement of Evan J. Krame to the Bar of Maryland,” case AG No. 65.

Krame was suspended for eighteen months by the District of Columbia Court of Appeals on November 3, 2022. The suspension was in response to the state’s Board of Professional Responsibility’s recommendation of disbarment upon finding that Krame committed misconduct including misleading a judge, recklessly submitting altered time records, and negligent misappropriation of client funds.

Maryland court documents reveal that on January 23, 2023, Krame was suspended pursuant to Krame and Bar Counsel’s agreement to the imposition of reciprocal discipline and that Krame should be suspended for 18 months nunc pro tunc to November 19, 2021, the date Krame was temporarily suspended by the Court.

After serving his suspension period, Evan J. Krame sought reinstatement to the Bar of Maryland. On May 19, 2023, Krame filed a Petition for Reinstatement, requesting his return to the legal profession. The Attorney Grievance Commission responded to the petition, consenting to Krame’s reinstatement.

Accordingly, the Court, upon consideration of the petition for reinstatement filed by Krame and the response thereto by the Attorney Grievance Commission, ruled in favor of Krame and granted his petition.

The Order reads:

“ORDERED, by the Supreme Court of Maryland, pursuant to Maryland Rules19-752(f)(1) and 19-751(e)(1), that the petition is GRANTED; and it is further

ORDERED, that Evan J. Krame is reinstated as a member of the Bar of Maryland; and it is further
