March 1, 2017 – On Monday, April 3, 2017, at 9 a.m., a public hearing will be held before Referee James C. Boll Jr. at the law office of Halling & Cayo, 320 E. Buffalo, Suite 700, Milwaukee, on the petition of David V. Moss, Poulsbo, Wash., who formerly practiced law in Galesville, Wis., 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.
On July 30, 2014, the Wisconsin Supreme Court suspended Moss’s Wisconsin law license for two years, finding that Moss engaged in repeated misconduct for taking fees from clients, failing to perform the work for which he was retained, failing to communicate with clients regarding the status of their matters, and failing to return fees and client files on request, in addition to brandishing a handgun during a client meeting. Disciplinary Proceedings Against Moss, 2014 WI 95.
To be reinstated, Moss has the burden of substantiating by clear, satisfactory, and convincing evidence that he has the moral character to practice law in Wisconsin; his resumption of the practice of law will not be detrimental to the administration of justice or subversive of the public interest; all of his representations in his reinstatement petition are substantiated; and he has complied fully with the terms of the orders of suspension or revocation and with SCR 22.26.
Relevant information may be provided to or obtained from the Office of Lawyer Regulation’s counsel in the matter, Attorney Gregg Herman, Loeb & Herman S.C., 111 E. Wisconsin Ave., Suite 1900, Milwaukee, WI 53202. Attorney Herman’s telephone number is (414) 272-5632.
