Florida Bar Disbars St. Petersburg Attorney
She failed to comply with a prior disciplinary order, according to the Florida Bar.
ST. PETERSBURG – The Florida Bar has disbarred St. Petersburg attorney Kelley Andrea Bosecker.
Bosecker was one of 10 Florida attorneys disciplinedby the Bar. Of the 10, two were disbarred, one had a license revoked, six were suspended and one was publicly reprimanded. One attorney was also ordered to pay restitution to a client.
Bosecker’s disbarment came after a Sept. 27 court order. The Bar said Bosecker, who was admitted to practice in 1984, failed to comply with a prior disciplinary order. She practiced law while suspended, she failed to timely provide notice of her suspension to opposing counsel, the courts, and her clients; and she falsely advised the court that she had notified all parties of her suspension.
Disbarred lawyers may not re-apply for admission for five years. They are required to go through an extensive process that includes a rigorous background check and retaking the Bar exam.
As an official arm of the Florida Supreme Court, the Florida Bar and its Department of Lawyer Regulation are charged with administering a statewide disciplinary system to enforce Supreme Court rules of professional conduct for the more than 105,000 members of The Florida Bar. Key discipline case files that are public record are posted to attorneys’ individual online Florida Bar profiles. Additional information on the discipline system and how to file a complaint are available at floridabar.org.
Court orders are not final until time expires to file a rehearing motion and, if filed, determined. The filing of such a motion does not alter the effective date of the discipline.
