On Tuesday, August 22, 2023, the Supreme Court of Ohio granted the petition for reinstatement of Attorney Blaine Lawrence Gottehrer to the practice of law in the state.

The case is titled “In the Matter of Gottehrer,” with case no. 2009-1918.

Attorney Gottehrer had previously signified his intention to return to the practice of law and was earlier issued an order dated February 15, 2023, that he would be “reinstated to the practice upon providing proof that he has taken and passed the Multi-State Professional Responsibility Exam”. In compliance with the court’s order, Attorney Gottehrer took the MPRE and subsequently filed a notice of taking and passing the same.

Attorney Guttehrer was indefinitely suspended on March 17, 2010, by the Supreme Court of Ohio upon its findings that Attorney Gottehrer failed to act with reasonable diligence and promptness in his representations, failed to communicate with clients, made excessive charges, and failed to cooperate with the ongoing investigation.

Taking into consideration Attorney Gottehrer’s filing of the MPRE notice, the Court granted the petition.

The order reads:

“Therefore, it is ordered by this court that respondent, Blaine Lawrence Gottehrer, Attorney Registration No. 0027147, is reinstated to the practice of law in the state of Ohio.”

Attorney Blaine Lawrence Gottehrer is a General Practice Lawyer at Cleveland, Ohio, having acquired his license in 1980. More of Mr. Gottehrer’s bio can be found here.
