Shepherd, of Topeka, was suspended from the practice of law for two years for violating the Kansas Rules of Professional Conduct on competence; diligence; communication; safekeeping property; preserving client funds; withdrawing from representation; making a false statement in connection with a disciplinary matter; engaging in conduct involving dishonesty, fraud, deceit, or misrepresentation; and engaging in conduct prejudicial to the administration of justice

Appeal No. 120,924: In the Matter of Joshua T. Mathews

Archived oral argument video 

The Supreme Court today ordered Mathews, of Leawood, who was admitted to practice law in Kansas in April 2008, be censured and that the censure be published in the Kansas Reports. The court agreed with a recommendation from a panel of the Kansas Board of Discipline of Attorneys and the Disciplinary Administrator's Office that Mathews should be disciplined for misconduct in reporting his continuing legal education credits information to the Kansas Continuing Legal Education Commission in 2017. The court found he engaged in misconduct including dishonesty by falsely denying to the commission he had viewed online CLE courses while attending an in-person CLE program, and inaccurately stating on an affidavit that he completed one hour of ethics credit.
