SCHENECTADY - A Schenectady attorney has been suspended after allegations he failed to work on a client's case, according to a ruling released Thursday.

Glen W. Brownell was suspended for a total of 90 days Thursday by the Appellate Division of the State Supreme Court after finding that he essentially admitted to the charges when he failed to respond to a motion in the discipline case.

He was accused in November of professional misconduct related to a client who sought legal work. The allegations centered around Brownell accepting money from the client, but then failing to promptly respond to the client, provide the services and failed to file a proper legal response in the case. 

The court then relied on past responses by Brownell that set out mitigating factors, as well as his disciplinary history that includes five letters of admonition and a letter of caution before arriving at the 90-day suspension term.

Brownell has practices law since 1985 and has taken some notable local cases.
