PO Box 375 Portland, ME 04112-0375 Re: GCF# 09-204 Dear Ms. Handrahan and Attorney Waxman: Please be advised that on November 3, 2009, a Grievance Commission panel reviewed the complaint in the above matter and issued its decision which I received today. Based upon that review, the panel found probable cause to believe that Attorney Michael J. Waxman had engaged in misconduct subject to sanction under the Maine Bar Rules for which appropriate discipline should be sought under those Rules. Accordingly, pursuant to Maine Bar Rule 7.1 (d)( 5), the office of Bar Counsel will prepare and present a formal petition for disciplinary proceedings before a different panel of the Grievance Commission. Those proceedings shall take place pursuant to Bar Rule 7.1(e). At a later date, you will receive advance notice of the time and place of hearing. Thank you.
