Clients complain after lawyer fails to appear

Gavel

WATERBURY, Conn. (AP) — A Waterbury attorney faces a disciplinary hearing after clients say he failed to show up to represent them in court.

The Republican-American newspaper reports Raymond Kotulski also has not complied with a court order to turn his files over to another attorney to handle those cases.

The newspaper reports Kotulski was found to be “incapacitated” and had his law license suspended after failing to show up at a hearing earlier this month and checking into a drug-and-alcohol rehabilitation center.

There was no answer at Kotulski’s law office. The newspaper reports a man who answered a cell phone number on Kotulski’s business card told a reporter that Kotulski did not live there.

Judge Mark Taylor has not scheduled a date for Kotulski’s disciplinary hearing.
