Betterton-Fike v. People.

No. 21PDJ079. 5/13/2022. Opinion Denying Reinstatement.

February 4, 2023

Following a reinstatement hearing, a hearing board denied W. Bradley Betterton-Fike (attorney registration number 36250) reinstatement to the practice of law under CRCP 251.29.

In April 2020, Betterton-Fike was suspended for eight months with the requirement that he petition for reinstatement, if at all, under CRCP 251.29(c). Betterton-Fike was suspended because he physically assaulted his wife, which constituted criminal conduct that reflected adversely on his fitness as a lawyer. The hearing board concluded that reinstatement was not appropriate because Betterton-Fike failed to prove by clear and convincing evidence that he is fit to practice law and that he has been rehabilitated from his underlying misconduct.
