Mahoning County Bar Association v. Joseph R. Macejko, Case No. 2020-1513
The Ohio Board of Professional Conduct recommends a public reprimand for Joseph Macejko, an attorney in Poland, Ohio. The board found that Macejko, as part of compiling estate-planning materials for a friend's parents, pre-notarized documents before visiting them.
Macejko objects to the proposed sanction, asking that the charge be dismissed. The Ohio Supreme Court will hear arguments in the case from Macejko and the Mahoning County Bar Association, which investigated the alleged misconduct. Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, the oral argument will be held by videoconference, which will be livestreamed.
