APPEALED FROM:

Original Jurisdiction


DOCKET NOS. 2002.043 & 2003.031


 

In the above-entitled cause, the Clerk will enter:

Robert Andres is a lawyer licensed to practice law in the State of Vermont. Disciplinary Counsel has presented the Court with evidence that Attorney Andres was convicted of simple assault. The Court finds that the behavior underlying the conviction reflects adversely on Attorney Andres' fitness to practice law. The Court also finds that the evidence sufficiently establishes that the respondent has violated Rule 8.4(h) of the Vermont Rules of Professional Conduct and presently poses a substantial threat of harm to the public.

Having examined the evidence transmitted by Disciplinary Counsel, the Court finds that the respondent' s license to practice law should be suspended on an interim basis. Therefore, pursuant to Rules 17(D)(1) and 18(B) of Administrative Order 9, the Court orders
