Docket No.: BAR-10-4

Issued by: Single Justice, Maine Supeme Judicial Court

Date: March 23, 2010

Respondent: Brian Aromando

Bar Number: 009897

Order: Temporary Suspension


Order of Suspension

By documents dated February 26, 2010, the Board of Overseers of the Bar (the Board) petitioned this Court for an immediate Order temporarily suspending Brian Aromando from the practice of law in the State of Maine. Included with the Board's Petition were related exhibits and an Affidavit of Bar Counsel. The Court notes that in October 2009 Mr. Aromando was administratively suspended from the practice of law in Maine for his failure to maintain his continuing legal education requirements, failure to either renew his annual registration for his law license or pay the required annual fee.

Upon consideration of the Board's Petition and Affidavit it is hereby ORDERED:

For good cause shown by the Board that Brian Aromando appears to have committed numerous violations of the Code of Professional Responsibility and/or Maine Rules of Professional Conduct, thereby serving as a threat to clients, the public and to the administration of justice, this Court hereby orders that he be temporarily suspended from the practice of law in Maine until the conclusion and resulting disposition of all disciplinary matters now pending before the Grievance Commission or the Court, including his full payment of the duly ordered refund amount of $1500.00 to James Moe, or until such other time as the Court may direct.

For the Court

Hon. Joseph M. Jabar, Associate Justice - Maine Supreme Judicial Court
