the presiding disciplinary judge and a hearing
panel disbarred Nancy D. Petersen, Phoenix,
While already suspended from the practice of
law, Ms. Petersen began representing a family
law client. In so doing she committed the unauthorized practice of law. Ms. Petersen deluded

to practice and accepted money for the representation. She concocted excuses for not being
able to appear with the client in court and failed
to obey her prior suspension order to notify all
clients of her suspension. Ms. Petersen failed to
respond to the State Bar’s screening investigation and lawful demand for information, made
false statements to the Attorney Discipline
Probable Cause Committee, and failed to file an
answer in the formal proceedings.
Aggravating factors: prior disciplinary offenses, dishonest or selfish motive, a pattern of misconduct, multiple offenses, bad-faith obstruction of the disciplinary proceedings by intentionally failing to comply with rules or orders
of the disciplinary agency, submission of false
evidence, false statements, or other deceptive
practices during the disciplinary process, refusal
to acknowledge wrongful nature of conduct,
vulnerability of victim, substantial experience in
the practice of law, and indifference to making

same names. All discipline reports should be read
carefully for names, addresses and Bar numbers.
