June 6, 2018 – A public hearing will held before Referee Jonathan V. Goodman on July 12, 2018, at 9 a.m., at Brown & Jones Reporting, 735 N. Water St., Milwaukee, WI 53202, on the petition of Christopher A. Mutschler, Sheboygan, to reinstate his Wisconsin law license. Any interested person may appear at the hearing and be heard in support of, or in opposition to, the petition for reinstatement.
In Disciplinary Proceedings Against Mutschler, 2011 WI 74,the Wisconsin Supreme Court revoked Mutschler’s law license. The revocation was based on 59 separate investigations involving many misconduct counts including, but not limited to, failing to diligently represent his clients, failing to hold unearned fees and advance payments in trust, failing to take reasonable steps to protect his clients’ interests upon termination of representation, and engaging in conduct involving dishonesty, fraud, deceit, or misrepresentation.
To be reinstated, Mutschler has the burden of substantiating by clear, satisfactory, and convincing evidence that: 1) he has the moral character to practice law in Wisconsin; 2) his resumption of the practice of law will not be detrimental to the administration of justice or subversive of the public interest; 3) all of his representations in his reinstatement petition are substantiated; and 4) he has complied fully with the terms of the order of suspension or revocation and with SCR 22.26.
Relevant information may be provided to or obtained from OLR Investigator, Kenneth E. Broderick, 110 E. Main St., Suite 315, Madison, WI 53703, or OLR retained counsel, Matthew J. Price, 777 E. Washington Ave., Milwaukee, WI 53202, (414) 297-5088.
