A Manhattan litigator, who according to online records has more than 40 years of experience, has been disbarred after ignoring some nine attempts by a disciplinary committee to reach him, then being suspended, and then failing to respond again after the committee served him with a motion that noticed his suspension and apparently mentioned disbarment.

The disciplinary actions pursued for roughly two and a half years by the Appellate Division, First Department’s attorney grievance committee against now-disbarred lawyer Lawrence A. Doris are rooted in a former client of Doris’ alleging that he never filed her personal injury suit despite sitting for three years on relevant paperwork from her, according to an August 2020 Appellate Division, First Department decision that suspended Doris’ license pending possible further disciplinary action.
