He filed a Petition for Reinstatement on 5/23/02, which was assigned to a Hearing Committee on July 11, 2002. A hearing was held on 10/30/02 during which the Respondent testified that he had continued to do paralegal work during his suspension for a sole-practitioner with whom he wished to associate when reinstated; that he had satisfied all of the conditions of his criminal sentence; that he took the required CLE credits; and, that he also continued his association with various community organizations. The attorney for whom he worked testified that he was impressed with the quality of Respondent’s work, his activities, and his character.
