Lawyer suspended for five years

Owatonna attorney Jeremy Thomas Kramer has been suspended for five years, following an investigation into allegations of misconduct.

Kramer has admitted that he misappropriated client funds and interest due under the IOLTA program, failed to reconcile his client trust account, allowed a non-lawyer to be a signatory on a client trust account and failed to cooperate with the Office of Lawyers Professional Responsibility in an investigation into the allegations. Kramer will be suspended for a minimum of five years, after which time he can petition for resinstatement.

The Supreme Court order noted that family matters causing Kramer stress during the period in which he committed misconduct were taken into account as mitigating factors.

Attorney Frances S. Li received a public reprimand this week from the Minnesota Supreme Court for committing misconduct. Li has admitted that she failed to supervise a suspended attorney she employed. The suspended attorney was allowed to handle client funds and engage in the practice of law.
