Hotusing petitions for Bar reinstatement

Announcements

Pursuant to Rule 3-7.10, Oscar Antonio Hotusing has petitioned the Supreme Court for Bar reinstatement.

Hotusing was suspended from the practice of law for 91 days, effective October 30, 2023. Hotusing violated the Rules Regulating the Florida Bar when he assisted a client in a dissolution of marriage matter that was filed in Maryland, even though Hotusing was not admitted to practice law in Maryland. Hotusing e-filed pleadings and other documents for the client through the Maryland Electronic Courts (MDEC). Hotusing used his law office email address and chose a pro se category when registering with MDEC, thereby concealing his assistance to the client from the trial court. When opposing counsel in the dissolution case discovered Hotusing’s conduct, she notified the trial court and reported it to The Florida Bar.

Any persons having knowledge bearing upon Hotusing’s fitness or qualifications to resume the practice of law should contact:
