On January 17, 2024, the Supreme Court of Missouri terminated the probation of attorney Roger Octavio Reyes.
The case is entitled “In the Matter of Roger Octavio Reyes” with case number SC99234.
On September 23, 2021, the Supreme Court of Missouri, issued an order regarding Reyes. The court determined that Reyes violated Rules 4-1.2(c) and 4-1.3 of the Rules of Professional Conduct, warranting disciplinary action. Considering the stipulation and the statement of acceptance of the Disciplinary Hearing Panel decision, the court ordered that Reyes be placed on probation for one year from the date of the order, in accordance with Rule 5.225. The conditions of probation align with those specified in the Disciplinary Hearing Panel decision. Additionally, a fee of $1,500.00, as per Rule 5.19(h), is directed to be paid to the Clerk of the Court for the Advisory Committee’s credit, with costs taxed to Reyes.
Following the disciplinary action, the Missouri Supreme Court terminated Reyes’ probation after he filed a motion stating he had completed the terms of his probation. The Chief Disciplinary Counsel responded to Reyes’ motion confirming he had fulfilled the requirements. The court then issued an order ending Reyes’ probationary period, with costs again being taxed to the attorney. With the termination order, Reyes’ disciplinary matter before the Missouri Supreme Court is now considered concluded.
According to Avvo, Mr. Reyes is a white collar crime attorney in Kearney, Missouri. He graduated from Valparaiso University School of Law. He obtained his law license in Missouri in 2006.
