Three attorneys disciplined in separate Supreme Court orders

NEW ORLEANS – Three attorneys, including two who have been practicing for decades, were disciplined following separate Feb. 11 Louisiana Supreme Court orders.

Denham Springs attorney Brian L. McCullough was  voluntarily and indefinitely suspended following a single page Louisiana Supreme Court order placing McCullough on interim suspension, effective immediately. The court accepted a joint petition for consent discipline reached between McCullough and the office of disciplinary counsel. McCullough's discipline is pending further court order.

The order did not detail why McCullough was disciplined.

McCullough was admitted to the bar in Louisiana on Oct. 18, 2007, according to his profile on the Louisiana State Bar Association's website.

In a previous discipline, McCullough received a deferred year-and-a-day suspension and was placed on two years probation following his conviction on a driving while intoxicated charge, according to an October 2012 state Supreme Court order. In the joint petition reached between the office of disciplinary counsel and McCullough, the attorney stipulated to having violated a professional conduct rule regarding commission of a criminal act that reflects adversely on the honesty, trustworthiness or fitness as a lawyer.

In an unrelated attorney disciplinary proceeding, Alexandria attorney Lauren G. Coleman received a deferred year-and-a-day suspension and was placed on a year of unsupervised probation. The state Supreme Court accepted a petition for joint discipline reached between Coleman and the office of disciplinary counsel after the office began an investigation into allegations that Coleman employed a disbarred attorney as a paralegal in her law firm.

Coleman was admitted to the bar in Louisiana on Oct. 5, 1984, according to her profile on the Louisiana State Bar Association's website.

In another attorney disciplinary proceeding, Lafayette attorney Aubrey E. Denton received a deferred year-and-a-day suspension and was placed on two years of conditional probation. The state Supreme Court accepted a petition for joint discipline reached between Denton and the office of disciplinary counsel after the office began an investigation into allegations that Denton had mismanaged his client trust account.

Denton was admitted to the bar in Louisiana on Oct. 6, 1978, according to her profile on the Louisiana State Bar Association's website.
