A Connecticut-based lawyer who it appears spent many years at small- and mid-sized firms before founding his own in 2013 has been suspended from practicing law after ignoring at least five disciplinary committee requests for bookkeeping records that may shed light on why he allegedly bounced a series of escrow-account checks sent to a client.

Stephen L. Fox has been immediately suspended in New York State pending further action by the Manhattan-based Appellate Division, First Department court, after he ignored almost a full years’ worth of attorney grievance committee records requests tied to the committee’s investigation of him allegedly bouncing three checks totaling $16,458 issued to a client in 2018.
