The Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court upheld an 18-month suspension for a Boston-area attorney who made falsified personal financial statements and disobeyed multiple court orders while representing herself in a divorce.

Maude Laroche-St. Fleur, an immigration attorney at Laroche Law Office, had appealed a single justice’s order suspending her from practicing law for 18 months, but it was upheld in a per curiam order by the court for her filing of false financial statements, having six contempt judgments against her in the divorce and related matters, among other misconduct, according to the state high court’s order filed Oct. 27.
