Stern v. People.

No. 23PDJ021. 4/3/2024. Opinion Granting Reinstatement.

May 8, 2024

Following a reinstatement hearing, a hearing board reinstated James Stern (attorney registration number 36157) to the practice of law in Colorado under CRCP 242.39. The reinstatement was on effective April 3, 2024.

In November 2022, Stern was suspended from the practice of law for six months, with the added requirement that he petition to reinstate his law license under CRCP 242.39. Stern’s suspension was premised on his unremitting pursuit of an attorney-fees-first approach in a joint representation that was riddled with conflicts. The hearing board reinstated Stern, finding that Stern proved by clear and convincing evidence that he complied with all disciplinary rules and orders, he is fit to practice law, and he has been rehabilitated from his underlying misconduct.
