A La Crosse attorney won’t be allowed to practice law for three months under an order imposed Friday by the Wisconsin Supreme Court.
The Office of Lawyer Regula-tion in December 2012 filed a complaint against Grenisen citing five counts of misconduct stemming from his representation of a 66-year-old woman in protective placement and guardianship.
During his representation, Grenisen took a $3,440 insurance payout owed to the woman and claimed it was a gift, had her sign an affidavit without permission of her guardian, and admitted that he has no experience in guardianship and protective placement, according to court records.
He also refused to comply with La Crosse County Circuit Judge Elliott Levine’s order not to contact the woman. Levine removed Grenisen as the woman’s attorney in 2011.
