Rocky Mount attorney reprimanded

Attorney: Sonya L. Whitaker

Location: Rocky Mount

Bar membership: Member since 1999

Disciplinary action: Reprimanded on May 30

Background: Whitaker filed a reinstatement petition from an administrative suspension of her law license. On the petition she answered that she did not have any disciplinary complaints, investigations or actions pending before a professional licensing organization when in fact she was aware that a State Bar grievance was pending and under investigation at that time. The bar repeatedly requested information from Whitaker in reference to the grievance, but she did not comply until after filing the petition for reinstatement. When questioned about the statement on the petition, Whitaker claimed that she did not know the matter was a grievance, which was disingenuous.

Previous discipline: None
