Hello. My name is***** will be happy to answer your question.
Can you please provide me with more details about this situation, including the nature of the civil contempt charges and the contempt charges have been resolved?
Thank you for your follow up.
Did the court actually held this attorney in contempt for either violating court order and/or non-payment of court ordered child support?
Unfortunately, generally, the state Bar would not take any disciplinary action against an active attorney, until and unless the attorney is held in contempt of court by the judge, however, if the judge does hold an active attorney in contempt of court, then such contempt can be reported to the state Bar and the Bar will review all the facts related to the contempt of court and could pursue disciplinary action if it is determined by the Bar that this attorney in fact had violated the law or any of the bar rules and the Bar sanctions can vary from fines to attorney's licensed being suspended.
I wish you the best of luck!
