A Washington attorney has been suspended from practicing law in the District of Columbia for a year after it was revealed that he double billed D.C. Superior Court.
Between 1999 and 2003, Harry Tun double billed the court on 162 occasions in what the court called “abysmal” record-keeping. The vouchers he submitted to the court were for “legal services rendered to indigent defendants.”
Tun cooperated with the Bar Counsel investigation and repaid the Superior Court $16,034. Because of his cooperation, the court dropped six months of Tun’s 18-month suspension. The suspension is followed by a one year probation period. Should the probation be revoked, however, the six-month stay of his suspension would be lifted.
Tun did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
