Sterling attorney’s law license suspended indefinitely

A Sterling attorney's law license has been suspended indefinitely, according to the Virginia State Bar. The suspension, which went into effect Oct. 26, is based on his indefinite suspension in Maryland.

Following an Attorney Grievance Commission investigation, James Aloysius Powers appeared before Judge Clayton Green Jr. in Maryland's Court of Appeals on July 10. He was found to have violated nine rules within the Maryland Lawyers’ Rules of Professional Conduct.

According to the Virginia State Bar, Powers' registered office is the iConnect Group, 21630 Ridgetop Circle in Sterling.

According to Maryland's Court of Appeals docket, the violations stemmed from Powers' misconduct during representation as well as post-representation of a client, whom Powers sued. During the litigation against the former client, Powers revealed information subject to the attorney-client privilege to the detriment of his former client.

Powers' license was summarily suspended in Virginia, based on the indefinite suspension in Maryland.

Reinstatement is contingent upon compliance with conditions and procedures of the Maryland Court of Appeals and the Virginia State Bar.
