Wise, VA attorney publicly reprimanded by State Bar


An attorney based in Wise has been disciplined by the Virginia State Bar.

It reported Wednesday that Anthony Collins was issued a public reprimand and given other punishment for violating professional rules that govern conflict of interest.

"This was an agreed disposition of misconduct charges," the report said.

The basis of the bar investigation was Anthony Collins' involvement in the case of Robert "Stuart" Collins, who is also an attorney and had his law license suspended by the state bar in 2013 after his conviction on federal drug charges.
