of a prior disciplinary record, full and free disclosure to a disciplinary board or cooperative
attitude toward proceedings, and imposition of
other penalties or sanctions.
Ms. Harris violated Rule 42, ARIZ.R.S.CT.,
ERs 1. 7, 1. 9, 1. 10, and 8. 4(d).

Following a hearing panel’s decision on Sept. 9,
2015, the presiding disciplinary judge entered
a final judgment and order on Oct. 1, 2015,
suspending Aeryn A. Heidemann, Scottsdale,
for three years. A May 20, 2015, order placing
Ms. Heidemann on interim suspension (PDJ
2015-9029) was vacated. Ms. Heidemann also
was assessed the costs and expenses of the disciplinary proceeding in the amount of $2,000.20.
Ms. Heidemann was a party to a family court
case. The court ordered her to submit to a hair
follicle test and to commence random ETG/
alcohol testing. Ms. Heidemann’s hair follicle test
was positive for cocaine and cocaine metabolites.
The court ordered Ms. Heidemann to continue
random drug testing and to submit to another
hair follicle test. The second hair follicle test was
positive for cocaine. Ms. Heidemann failed to
comply with the family court’s order that she
continue random drug testing, and she failed to
attend two status conferences. Ms. Heidemann
did not respond to the State Bar’s investigation.
The sole aggravating factor was illegal conduct.
The sole mitigating factor was absence of a
prior disciplinary record.
