Attorney Othman Atta of Milwaukee; serial liar

 

The state of Wisconsin presented Othman Atta with a law license in 1994 after he graduated from Hamline University Law School.

 

The Office of Lawyer Registration (OLR) found Othman guilty of the following misconduct.

  • Failed to withdraw representation when required to so act
  • Failed to cooperate with ethics investigators (Up yours, said Othman!)
  • Made false statements to a tribunal and opposing counsel
  • Breached client confidences
  • Engaged in sexual relationship with client

During his representation of a client in a divorce and immigration matter, Othman’s professional relationship with the client became romantic and intimate.

 

Notwithstanding the conflict of interest, Othman refused to withdraw from the representation.

 

When confronted about the relationship by the client’s former husband and his lawyer, Othman lied when he expressly denied a romantic relationship with the client existed. Othman also denied the relationship in an email to the lawyer, in chambers before a circuit court judge, and later in open court during the final divorce hearing.

 

As a consequence of his misconduct, the apologists for Attorney Misfits sitting on the Wisconsin Supreme Court punished Othman by gifting him with a complimentary reprimand.

 

As we speak (ca. September 2016), Othman practices with Atta Law Offices LLC at 6004 West Howard Avenue in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
