Attorney Louis Gerdes, Jr. of New Orleans; idiotic loser

 
The state of Louisiana presented Louis A. Gerdes, Jr. with a law license in 1968.
 
The Office of Disciplinary Counsel found Louis guilty of the following misconduct.
  1. Failed to properly supervise non-attorney staff
  2. Engaged in a conflict of interest
  3. Assisted a non-attorney in the unauthorized practice of law
  4. Engaged in conduct involving fraud, deceit, dishonesty or misrepresentation
  5. Failed to act with reasonable diligence (slacker)
  6. Failed to keep client informed about status of legal matter
  7. Failed to provide written contingent fee agreement to client
  8. Pursued false de competent representation (moron)
  9. Knowingly made a false statement of material fact to a tribunal
  10. Engaged in conduct client
  11. Failed to expedite client’s litigation
  12. Revealed confidential attorney information to third parties
  13. Misconduct involved multiple offenses
  14. Knowingly and intentionally violated duties owed to his clients
  15. Misconduct caused client significant harm
In one matter involving a client’s personal injury lawsuit, Louis the Loser actually failed to attend the deposition of his client’s treating physician that was being taken by defense counsel. In addition, in a court filing, Louis said his client’s case was worth $50,000; however, he had the chutzpah to demand $4.5 million to settle the case.
 
As one would suspect, this wasn’t Louis’ 1st bite at the Attorney Misfit Apple Tree. He was previously disciplined twice. He received a complimentary admonition and a complimentary 6-month suspension of his law license for engaging in a variety of misconduct.
 
As a consequence of his misconduct, the Patron Saints for Attorney Misfits sitting on the Louisiana Supreme Court punished Louis by gifting him with a complimentary 9-month suspension of his law license on his third bite at the Misfit Apple Tree.
 
As we speak (ca) December 2012) Louis practices at 1739 Saint Bernard Avenue in New Orleans, Louisiana.
