Attorney Steven Coaty of Newport, RI; ethical dwarf


The state of Rhode Island presented Gregory J. Acciardo with a law license in 1988 after he graduated from Marquette University Law School.


The Rhode Island Ethics Commission found Stevie guilty of the following misconduct.

  1. Disturbing pattern of neglecting legal matters entrusted to him
  2. Failed to act with due diligence (slacker)
  3. Failed to maintain proper trust account records
  4. Failed to provide accurate accountings of fees to clients
  5. Failed to communicate with clients
  6. Failed to keep clients informed of status of legal matters

As a consequence of his misconduct, the enablers for Attorney Misfits sitting on the Bar Court punished Stevie by gifting him with a complimentary censure.


As we speak (ca. March 2014) Stevie practices at 26 Red Cross Avenue in Newport, Rhode Island.
