The Florida State Supreme Court is considering a suspension of up to three years or even disbarment because Adorno accepted $2 million in fees as part of a $7 million class-action settlement that the report said “benefited just seven people and his firm.”
Adorno rose to prominence in South Florida as the co-founder of the nation’s largest minority-owned law firm, Adorno & Yoss, which has more than 250 lawyers around the country. According to the report, he has a deadline of Nov. 16 to show cause on why a suspension of up to three years or disbarment shouldn’t be imposed.
Adorno & Yoss is headquartered in Coral Gables and has 17 locations across the country. It is the 147th largest firm by size in the U.S., the Daily Business Review said.
