Attorney Marshall Dotson, III of Greensboro, NC; ethical dwarf

 
The state of North Carolina presented Marshall Dotson, III with a law license in 1989.
 
The Grievance Committee of the North Carolina State Bar charged Marshall with the following misconduct.
  1. Failed to act with due diligence (slacker)
  2. Failed to respond to client inquires
  3. Failed to return client file to client after being discharged
  4. Failed to respond to request for information from grievance investigator (Up Yours, said Marshall!)
In one matter, Marshall represented Melissa White in divorce, child custody, child support, and equitable distribution matters, which led to Phillip filing a lawsuit against Jerry White on said issues plus attorney fees. Attorney Afi S. Johnson-Parris represented Mr. White and filed an answer on his behalf.
 
Several weeks later, Ms. Johnson-Parris sent a notice to Marshall that a child custody orientation session which the parties were required to attend had been scheduled; however, Marshall never notified his client about the session.
 
Subsequently, Ms. White she had earlier missed two child custody orientation sessions and that if she missed the next one she would be held in contempt of court. Marshall also failed to notify her of the two prior scheduled sessions.
 
Later on, Ms. White agreed to sign a quitclaim deed to the martial home in favor of her husband. Ms. Johnson-Parris repeatedly contacted Marshall to have his client sign the deed so her client could sell the home. Marshall never notified Ms. White of the communications he received from Ms. Johnson-Parris.
 
Over the next few weeks, Ms. White repeatedly communicated to Marshall of her willingness to sign the quitclaim deed, but he never provided it to her.
 
All that’s left now is for the North Carolina Supreme Court to determine the punishment that Marshall will receive for his egregious misconduct
 
As we speak (ca. March 2013) Marshall continues to practice in the Greensboro, North Carolina area.
