Lawyer Moszkowicz suspended three months
The Disciplinary Court has placed Maastricht lawyer David Moszkowicz on probation for three months after he allowed clients to pay him €1500 for advice in the prosecution of a civil procedure, but then neglected to get back to them, De Limburger reports. The clients in question asked the lawyer if an appeal would achieve anything in the case they were involved in. They made an appointment with Moszkowicz in his office. After this, he did not respond. It was only after several phone calls and the intervention of Eduard Prickartz that Moszkowicz let his clients know he had nothing for them. He then returned to them a dossier that they had submitted to him, with criminal and civil reports. The Court ruled that Moszkowicz's actions were "careless and unethically reprehensible." Last year September, Moszkowicz appealed the court for a similar ruling. This was in vain, then. Moszkowicz was prepared to pay his clients back the €1500.
