Highlight

Personal matters do not justify or excuse an attorney's misconduct but are mitigating factors that may reduce a disciplinary sanction.
Under the standards for imposing lawyer sanctions, a court imposing a disciplinary sanction against a lawyer should consider the ethical duty violated by the lawyer, the lawyer's mental state, the potential or actual injury caused by the lawyer's misconduct, and the existence of aggravating or mitigating factors.
