Mathews v. People.

No. 23PDJ043. 4/9/2024. Opinion Granting Reinstatement.

May 8, 2024

Following a reinstatement hearing, a hearing board reinstated Laura Ann Mathews (attorney registration number 33679) to the practice of law in Colorado under CRCP 242.39. The reinstatement took effect on April 9, 2024.

In September 2020, Mathews was suspended from the practice of law for three years. The suspension was premised on three episodes of misconduct. First, Mathews failed to initiate a guardianship proceeding on behalf of two clients and failed to communicate with them about the status of their case. Next, Mathews was convicted in 2019 for forging her clients’ names on a fee agreement, a class 5 felony. Last, Mathews pleaded guilty in 2019 for driving under the influence and for reckless driving. The hearing board reinstated Mathews, finding that she proved by clear and convincing evidence that she complied with all disciplinary rules and orders, she is fit to practice law, and she has been rehabilitated from her underlying misconduct.
