Hunter Biden’s License to Practice Law Suspended in Washington DC

Hunter Biden’s license to practice law in the District of Columbia has been suspended in the wake of a Delaware jury’s guilty verdict  in his criminal gun trial earlier this month.

“The respondent is suspended immediately from the practice of law in the District of Columbia pending resolution of this matter,” the DC Court of Appeals ordered Tuesday.

The DC Bar’s Office of Disciplinary Counsel filed a notice last week seeking to suspend the convicted felon’s law license following the June 11 conviction, according to the New York Post.

In its order, the DC Court of Appeals noted that Hunter was convicted of “serious crimes,” and based on the bar association’s rules,  members who commit offenses involving “false swearing, misrepresentation, [or] fraud,” among other breaches, are subject to suspension.

It took the Delaware jury’s guilty verdict on Biden’s federal gun violations two weeks ago to prompt the DC Bar’s Office of Disciplinary Counsel to act.

More than three years after the heinous contents of Hunter Biden’s laptop were published online, exposing hundreds of financial crimes, sex crimes, and drug-related crimes, the bar association still listed the disgraced 54-year-old as a member “in good standing.”

The appeals court also called on the DC Bar’s Board on Professional Responsibility to “institute a formal proceeding to determine the nature of the offense and whether it involves moral turpitude.”

The suspension only affects his ability to practice law in Washington, D.C.

The younger Biden,  a graduate of Yale Law School, was admitted to the DC bar in 2007 and reportedly paid $331 per year to maintain his active membership.

He “does not appear to have actively practiced law in DC in recent years,” the Post reported, going on to note that he did hold an “of counsel” position at the powerful Democrat law firm Boies Schiller Flexner LLP during Joe Biden’s vice presidency.

Hunter’s law license in Connecticut “is under an administrative suspension for failure to pay a reinstatement fee,” according to the Post. The First Son currently lives in California.

His legal team reportedly filed paperwork on Monday seeking a new trial on the gun charges.

Hunter faces up to 25 years in prison for lying on a federal screening form about his drug use, lying to a gun dealer and unlawfully possessing the gun.  As a first-time, nonviolent offender,  he is expected to get a shorter sentence, however. Sentencing in the case is expected to take place sometime in the fall.

Hunter still faces a tax evasion federal trial in California this coming September. He is accused of intentionally evading  $1.4 million in taxes between 2016 and 2019 and has pleaded not guilty to all of the charges.

More serious charges related to money laundering, bribery, illegal influence peddling, and operating as an unregistered foreign agent of corrupt and adversarial foreign governments were never brought against the first son.

The gun and tax evasion charges came only after U.S. District Judge Maryellen Noreika rejected the “sweetheart” plea deal between Delaware US attorney David Weiss and the defendant’s attorneys.
