ELC 14.2 LAWYER TO DISCONTINUE PRACTICE A disbarred or suspended lawyer, or a lawyer transferred to disability inactive status, must not practice law after the effective date of the disbarment, suspension, or transfer to disability inactive status, and also must take whatever steps necessary to avoid any reasonable likelihood that anyone will rely on him or her as a lawyer authorized to practice law. This rule does not preclude a disbarred or suspended lawyer, or a lawyer transferred to disability inactive status, from disbursing assets held by the lawyer to clients or other persons or from providing information on the facts and the lawyer’s theory of a case and its status to a succeeding lawyer, provided that the suspended or disbarred lawyer not be involved in any discussion regarding matters occurring after the date of the suspension or disbarment. The lawyer must provide this information on request and without charge. [Adopted effective October 1, 2002.]
