Issued by: Grievance Commission

Date: October 29, 2020

Respondent: Stephen J. Link, Esq.

Bar Number: 005539

Order: Report Finding of Probable Cause for Filing of Information with the Court

Disposition/Conduct: Report: Finding of Probable Cause for Filing of an Information

M. Bar R. 13(e)(10)(E)

This matter was heard by Grievance Commission Panel E on October 29, 2020 via Zoom. Pursuant to a Disciplinary Petition dated March 5, 2020, with the parties having been duly noticed, the Commission conducted a public disciplinary hearing in accordance with M. Bar R. 13(e)(7). The purpose of that hearing was to determine whether grounds exist for the issuance of a reprimand or whether probable cause exists for the filing of an Information with the Court. The Board of Overseers of the Bar was represented by Assistant Bar Counsel Justin W. Andrus. Attorney Link, the Respondent, failed to appear and was not represented in this proceeding.

Based upon the Petition, and the exhibits admitted at the hearing, the Commission finds that there is probable cause for the Respondent’s suspension or disbarment. Accordingly, the Commission directs the office of Bar Counsel to commence an attorney disciplinary action by filing an Information with the Court pursuant to M. Bar R. 13(g).
