An attorney has been handed a yearlong suspension by the Washington State Bar Association’s Disciplinary Board, which found a “pattern of neglect” in his handling of two separate client matters. 

Matthew S. Furness was admitted to practice law in the state of Washington in May 2011. He practiced law and maintained an office in Seattle until July 2017. He opened an office in Houston in May 2015. He has had no prior discipline with the WSBA, according to court records.
