Currently, there are two grievances pending against attorney Reid G. Brown.  The Grievance Committee notes that Brown presently suffers from various medical conditions that “significantly impair Brown’s professional judgment, performance, or competence as an attorney.”

The procedure for a consensual transfer to disability inactive status is detailed in the North Carolina State Bar’s administrative rules (see Subchapter B, Rule .0118(b)).  Based on clear, cogent, and convincing evidence, the Chair of the Grievance Committee concluded that Brown is disabled within the meaning of the administrative rules (see Subchapter B, Rule .0103(19)).  During the period of the disability, the pending grievances are stayed, and Brown cannot practice law in North Carolina.
