WHITEWATER—The Wisconsin Supreme Court suspended a Whitewater attorney's license to practice in Wisconsin for 90 days because of professional misconduct, according to the justices' opinion, released Aug. 21.

The disciplinary proceedings were for John C. Dade, who practices in Whitewater.

He received a 60-day suspension of his license in 2013. The OLR also filed a complaint alleging two counts of misconduct against Dade in 2013 related to grievances brought by a client regarding Dade's failure to file court documents in a timely manner, and Dade's failure to cooperate in an investigation of the case by the ORL.
As part of the condition of the reinstatement of his license, Dade must also complete six continuing legal education credits in law office management.

Dade, who began practicing law in 1983, received reprimands from the Office of Lawyer Regulation in 1991, 2007 and 2012 for his lack of diligence in handling of client cases, failure to obey a court order and his failure to cooperate in investigations with the OLR and its predecessor, the Board of Attorneys Professional Responsibility.

He received a 60-day suspension of his license in 2007.
