Attorney Michael Backes of Milwaukee; cheater

The state of Wisconsin provided Michael J. Backes with a law license in 1986 after he graduated from Marquette University Law School.
The Office of Lawyer Regulation (OLR) found Eric guilty of the following misconduct.
  1. Failed to return unearned fees (cheater)
  2. Failed to act with reasonable diligence (slacker)
  3. Failed to respond to client inquiries
  4. Lied to his clients about progress in their legal matters
  5. Engaged in conduct involving fraud, deceit, dishonesty or misrepresentation
Mike had a habit of refusing to return unearned fees until the client-victim filed an ethics complaint against him. Put simply, Mike decided it was acceptable to defraud his clients unless and until they filed a formal complaint against him. What a guy!
As expected, this wasn’t Mike’s 1st bite at the Attorney Misfit Tree. A couple of years earlier he received a complimentary reprimand for engaging in an assortment of misconduct.
As a consequence of his misconduct, the patron saints for Attorney Misfits sitting on the Wisconsin Supreme Court punished Michael by gifting him with yet another complimentary reprimand.
As we speak (ca. April 2012) Michael practices law with the Law Office of Mike Backes in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
