People v. Morrow.

No. 21PDJ026. 8/13/2021. Stipulation to Reciprocal Discipline.

August 2021

The Presiding Disciplinary Judge entered judgment on the pleadings and imposed reciprocal discipline, suspending Eric Morrow (attorney registration number 27106) from the practice of law in Colorado for two years. Morrow’s suspension took effect on September 22, 2021.

This reciprocal discipline case arose out of discipline imposed upon Morrow in New Mexico. On March 10, 2021, the New Mexico Supreme Court suspended Morrow for no less than two years, all served. The suspension was based on a conditional agreement between Morrow and New Mexico disciplinary authorities in which Morrow agreed that he had failed to represent clients competently and diligently; failed to hold client funds separate from his own funds; failed to keep complete records of client funds he held; failed to deposit a client retainer into his trust account; failed to provide a prompt accounting and a return of client funds when requested; knowingly disobeyed a court order; and engaged in conduct prejudicial to the administration of justice.

Through this conduct, Morrow engaged in conduct constituting grounds for reciprocal discipline under CRCP 251.21, which calls for imposition of the same discipline as that imposed in New Mexico.
