Pursuant to Rule 3-7.10, Bradford L. Stewart has petitioned the Supreme Court for Bar reinstatement.
Stewart was suspended for 91 days, effective March 20, for advising a client in a paternity/child support matter, and the client’s employer, his uncle, that they could change the client’s job position to one with a lower salary, which could reduce the client’s child support obligation. Stewart then filed his client’s amended verified financial affidavit reflecting the lower income. The scheme was not discovered until several years later, when emails between the client, uncle, and Stewart were provided to the mother.
Any persons having knowledge bearing upon the Stewart’s fitness or qualifications to resume the practice of law should contact:
