Case No. 116,541: In the Matter of Scott M. McFall
Case No. 116,541 archived oral argument
McFall, an attorney residing in Olathe, Kansas, has been the subject of ongoing disciplinary proceedings based on failure to act on cases entrusted to him and failure to comply with agreements with the office of the Disciplinary Administrator and with Kansas Supreme Court rules, as well as failing to cooperate with the Disciplinary Administrator’s investigation. During the disciplinary proceedings, McFall transferred to disability inactive status. In 2021, he was removed from disability status, and his license to practice law was temporarily suspended. Considering various changes in McFall’s circumstances, the Disciplinary Administrator, the disciplinary hearing panel, and McFall all agreed a six-month suspension would be the appropriate sanction. The Supreme Court concurred and suspended McFall’s license for six months, following which he may apply for reinstatement.
