Attorney Elise Joyner of DC; ethical misfit


The District of Columbia presented Elise A. Joyner with a law license in 1988.


The Office of Disciplinary Counsel found Elise guilty of the following misconduct.


In one matter, Elise failed to safeguard entrusted funds she received on behalf of a client in which two medical providers had a third-party interest. Joyner’s client disputed the medical provider’s entitlement to the funds and Joyner delivered the disputed funds to the client.


The ethical rules require that the lawyer decline to release disputed funds to either the client or the third party until the dispute is resolved.


As a consequence of her misconduct, the apologists for Attorney Misfits sitting on the DC Court of Appeals Board punished Elise by gifting her with a complimentary admonition.


As we speak (ca. April 2016), Elise practices at 1730 Rhode Island Avenue NW in Washington, DC.
