PORTLAND, Maine — A Westbrook attorney has been suspended from practicing due to a disability, according to information released Tuesday by the Maine Board of Overseers of the Bar.
Timothy Concannon, 43, was admitted to the bar last year as a solo practitioner, according to the petition for suspension dated Nov. 25. He is registered to practice in Maine and New York. His practice focused on tax and corporate law.
“Concannon is impaired by a mental health disorder and/or substance abuse dependency,” the petition said.
He is receiving treatment, according to information released by the Board of Overseers.
The lawyer had an office in Westbrook but had to vacate it for financial reasons, the petition said. During the week of Nov. 20, the Board of Overseers received several calls reporting that Concannon “had disappeared and wasn’t responsive to client calls/communications.”
Concannon failed to respond to efforts by the Board of Overseers to reach him, the petition said.
In a press release issued Tuesday, the Board of Overseers urged Concannon’s former clients to contact the board to retrieve their case files and other information.
