In August 2008, the Disciplinary Hearing Commission of the North Carolina State Bar suspended Paul L. Erickson from the practice of law for a period of five years.  Mr. Erickson’s suspension was based on his role in a “debt elimination scheme.”  In its twenty-two page order, the Commission concluded that Erickson violated a litany of Rules of Professional Conduct.  The suspension became effective on October 9, 2008.

On September 24, 2013, Mr. Erickson filed a petition for reinstatement, claiming to have satisfied the conditions of his order of suspension.  Though some conditions were not satisfied on a timely basis, no objection was raised to Mr. Erickson’s petition.  The Secretary of the North Carolina State Bar entered an order of reinstatement on October 25, 2013.
