Wake County attorney suspended 30 days

Attorney: Elizabeth J. Caviness  

County: Wake County  

Bar membership: Since 1989 

Disciplinary action: 30-day suspension  

Background: The defendant was found guilty of noncompliance with the investigation of a grievance filed against her on March 20, 2022. She failed to respond to numerous letters of notice, phone calls, and subpoenas from the State Bar. 

On Nov. 3, 2022, the DHC entered an Order directing the defendant to show cause within 14 days of the date of service of the Order upon the defendant explaining why her law license should not be suspended for failure to comply with the grievance process. The Order warned the defendant that failure to comply with the grievance process or respond to the Order may result in the suspension of her law license. 

The defendant failed to respond to the November 3, 2022, Order and was therefore suspended from practicing law in North Carolina for 30-days.
