Monique Pressley told theJasmineBRAND in a statement Friday (Jan. 17),
“The allegations against me of impropriety are unequivocally not true. The claim that my suspension due to disability is because of the allegations made against me is false.”
In the 22 years I have been practicing law, I have not once been disciplined by the bar for improper conduct—not a suspension, not even a letter of reprimand. As soon as I am able, I look forward to the opportunity to defend against these charges.”
