Attorney Louis Avitabile of Waterbury, CT; serial offender

 
The state of Connecticut provided Louis S. Avitabile with a law license in 1968.
 
The Statewide Grievance Committee found Louis guilty of misconduct on several separate occasions as set forth below.
 
Louis’ 1st bite at the Attorney Misfit Apple Tree
 

In one matter, Louis signed a retainer agreement to represent a client in an auto accident case. The client stated that Louis settled the case for $3,000 without his permission. The only outstanding medical bill was from Dr. Zampino. At the time of the disciplinary hearing, Louis had not paid his client the $1,511 he was due from the settlement.
 
Louis also represented the same client in a criminal matter; however, he failed to provide the client with a written fee agreement. Louis claimed he had an oral agreement with the client that he could hold the $1,511 until the criminal matter concluded; however, he couldn’t produce any documentation to support his claim.
 
After the criminal case ended, the client sought reimbursement of the settlement funds. Louis failed to provide the client with an accounting of the settlement proceeds. Several months later, Louis sent a $630 check to the client; however, the client never received it because Louis placed a stop payment order on it.
 
As a consequence of his misconduct, the Patron Saints for Attorney Misfits sitting on the Statewide Grievance Committee punished Louis by gifting him with a complimentary reprimand.

Louis’ 3rd bite at the Attorney Misfit Apple Tree

 
In one matter, Louis was hired to represent a client in regards to a speeding ticket. Louis failed to provide the client with a fee agreement; however, the client did pay Louis $125. Shortly thereafter, the client received a suspension notice from the Dept. of Motor Vehicles indicating his license would be suspended because he failed to appear at a scheduled court hearing. The client then gave the suspension notice to Louis who assured him he would take care of it, but he failed to do so. The client then received notice from the Dept. of Motor Vehicles that he would be prohibited from renewing his license because it had been suspended. The client notified Louis of the notice and again Louis told him he would take care of and that he would receive a restoration of his license notice within a couple of weeks.
 
In another matter, Louis was hired to represent a client in a personal injury matter; however, Louis failed to file a civil lawsuit before the statute of limitations expired, despite assuring the client he would do so.
 
As a consequence of his misconduct, the cheerleaders for Attorney Misfits sitting on the Statewide Grievance Committee punished Louis by gifting him with yet another complimentary reprimand.
 
Louis’ 4th bite at the Attorney Misfit Apple Tree

 
In one matter, Louis was appointed as a special public defender to represent a client charged with assaulting a police officer. Subsequently, the case was placed on the jury trial list and during this time, the client was living with his parents in Milford, Connecticut. The client provided Louis with his Milford address and phone number.
 
Several months later, the client moved to Flint, Michigan and called Louis’ office once a month to inquire whether a trial date had been assigned. Subsequently, a trial date was scheduled and Louis appeared and asked for a continuance which was granted for one day. The client did not appear at trial and an arrest warrant was issued.
 
Louis claimed that he did not contact the client because he didn’t have any information on his location or a telephone number, which was contradicted by the client as aforementioned.
 
As a consequence of his misconduct, the apologists for Attorney Misfits sitting on the Statewide Grievance Committee punished Louis by gifting him with yet another complimentary reprimand.
 
In total the comedians sitting on the Statewide Grievance Committee punished Louis seven (7) separate times by gifting him a complimentary reprimand on each and every occasion.
 
As we speak (ca. January 2013) Louis practices at 41 Holmes Avenue in Waterbury, Connecticut.
