Kansas City attorney reprimanded over diligence, communication misconduct allegations

By Karen Kidd | Dec 18, 2018

JEFFERSON CITY (St. Louis Record) — Kansas City attorney Brent Lee Winterberg recently received a reprimand following a Missouri Supreme Court order regarding misconduct allegations.

The court took action against Winterberg after "being sufficiently advised of and concerning the premises" and considering the Missouri Office of Chief Disciplinary Counsel's statement accepting a disciplinary hearing panel's decision, according to the Dec. 18 court order.

"Upon consideration of these findings, previous decisions of this Court, ABA Standards for Imposing Lawyer Discipline, and aggravating and mitigating circumstances, this court orders that respondent Brent L. Winterberg is hereby reprimanded with the requirements set forth in the decision of the disciplinary hearing panel filed herein," the order said.

The high court reprimanded Winterberg following allegations he violated professional conduction rules, including those regarding diligence and communication. The court's order provided no details about the allegations against Winterberg.

Winterberg also was ordered to pay $1,000 to the advisory committee fund in addition to all costs in the matter against him.

Winterberg was admitted to the bar in Missouri on April 23, 1993, according to his profile at The Missouri Bar's website. Winterberg's law office is located on Madison Avenue in Kansas City, according to online records about his case.

A hearing before a disciplinary panel in Winterberg's case was scheduled in May. In October, state's chief disciplinary counsel filed its statement accepting the disciplinary hearing panel's decision in the matter. The statement was filed by chief disciplinary counsel Sharon Weedin.

Winterberg has been represented in the disciplinary proceedings against him by Kansas City attorney Lance David Sandage.

In a previous discipline, Winterberg was suspended in January 2011 for nonpayment of taxes. He was reinstated as a member of the state bar in good standing the following month after presenting sufficient evidence that the tax matter against him had been satisfactorily resolved.
