Attorney Keith Timmons, who handles the campaign finances of Democratic mayoral nominee Catherine Pugh and a number of other local politicians, will see his license to practice law formally suspended next month for 30 days by order of the Attorney Grievance Commission.
The consent order, dated Sept. 1, says Timmons violated the Maryland Lawyers’ Rules of Professional Conduct 1.4(a) and 5.3(a). The suspension begins Oct. 3.
“I accepted the consent for 30 days, it’s about communications and supervision of an employee,” Timmons says. “I accepted it because I wanted to stop it. [The case was] costing me too much money.”
