On Tuesday, June 27, 2023, the Supreme Court of Wisconsin suspended attorney William H. Green for failure to cooperate with investigations in multiple cases of misconduct.

The case is entitled “Office of Lawyer Regulation v. William H. Green,” with case no. 2022AP1212-D.

Attorney Green’s law license was automatically suspended due to his failure to cooperate with investigations in multiple cases. He faced allegations of misconduct for various client representations. In one case, he failed to advance bankruptcy cases, failed to respond to communication, and failed to refund unearned fees. Similarly, in another representation, he missed deadlines, failed to communicate, and disobeyed court orders, resulting in a foreclosure judgment. Furthermore, it was also alleged that Attorney Green neglected his clients’ matters, failed to keep them informed, and did not respond to their communications. Additionally, he failed to comply with court orders and refund unearned fees.

The filing states:

“Attorney Green missed multiple filing deadlines in the case, leading the Chapter 13 Trustee to ask for dismissal on three occasions. B.L. tried to contact Attorney Green multiple times and tried to meet with him to discuss the status of her bankruptcy, but Attorney Green did not substantively respond to her requests.”

The filing continues:

“On September 29, 2021, the bankruptcy Trustee moved to dismiss the bankruptcy because the Bs had not made the required payments and had failed to provide tax returns to the Trustee. Attorney Green failed to respond to the Trustee’s motion to dismiss or take any other steps to advance the Bs’ bankruptcy. On October 27, 2021, the bankruptcy court dismissed the Bs’ case. Attorney Green had received $521.59 toward his fees through the Chapter 13 plan.”

Considering the facts previously mentioned, the Supreme Court of Wisconsin has made the determination to enact a suspension upon Green. This decision comes as a consequence of the circumstances surrounding Green’s actions and their implications within the context of the legal profession.

The Disposition states:

“It is ORDERED that the license of William H. Green to practice law in Wisconsin is suspended for a period of two years, effective the date of this order.”
