Judge orders arrest of no-show lawyer


WATERBURY — A Waterbury lawyer accused of failing to show up at clients’ court dates faces arrest after missing his own disciplinary hearing.

The Republican-American newspaper reports 34-year-old Raymond Kotulski failed to appear Wednesday at a hearing before Judge Salvatore Agati, prompting the judge to issue a warrant for his arrest.

Kotulski’s law licence was placed on inactive status in December after he was found to be incapacitated and entered a drug and alcohol rehabilitation program.

Several clients had complained that Kotulski did not show up to represent them in court.

Kotulski’s cases were turned over to another attorney, Jerry Attanasio. But Attanasio has said he has had a hard time getting those case files from Kotulski and several lawsuits have been dismissed due to a lack of action.
