Lincoln attorney sees law license suspended for 2 years

September 21, 2018

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — The Nebraska Supreme Court has suspended the law license of a Lincoln attorney for two years after finding he violated numerous rules of conduct.

Tobin Wolfe’s license had already been temporarily suspended in November after 10 of his clients filed complaints ranging from failing to communicate with clients and failing to diligently complete work to failing to properly account for legal fees. The high court’s Counsel for Discipline says when it contacted Wolfe about the allegations, he didn’t respond for approximately eight months.

Wolfe presented evidence that he suffered a major depressive episode that played a significant role in his conduct.

After his suspension, Wolfe can seek to be reinstated, but must undergo two years of supervision upon readmission.

Wolfe could not be reached for comment Friday.
