The D.C. Bar’s Board on Professional Responsibility recommended a 30-day suspension for attorney Gregory Hawn on Dec. 5 for allegedly padding his r�sum�. In April, Legal Times reported that the D.C. Bar Counsel had accused Hawn, a second-year associate in Bracewell & Giuliani’s D.C. office, of falsifying his r�sum� and altering his law school transcript while trying to land a job at Mayer, Brown, Rowe & Maw’s Los Angeles office. Hawn quit Bracewell soon after the firm learned of the charge, which arose after Hawn used a legal recruiter to help with the attempted lateral move. He forwarded one version of his r�sum� and transcript to the recruiter and sent a different version to Mayer, Brown. According to the Bar Counsel, both contained falsehoods. Among the peccadillos were Hawn’s claims that he received the Myers Society Scholarship for Academic Achievement; that he was honored with the American Jurisprudence Legal Rhetoric and Writing Award; and that he had been an E. Robert Hinneman Finalist for Moot Court Appellate Advocacy. He also managed to raise his grade-point average almost half a point after graduating from law school. “Lawyers can’t engage in misconduct in their personal or professional life,” says Bar Counsel Wallace Shipp Jr. Hawn did not return calls for comment.
