Hunter Biden’s DC law license in jeopardy after felony convictions

The Office of the Disciplinary Counsel, which oversees disciplinary cases for members of the Washington, DC, bar, filed a “notice of discipline” with the DC Court of Appeals on Monday seeking to suspend the first son’s law license over his recent felony convictions.

The DC bar considers any felony as a “serious crime,” and as such, the court would be able to “enter an order immediately suspending the attorney, notwithstanding the pendency of an appeal.”

Hunter, 54, graduated from Yale Law School in 1996 and was admitted to the DC bar in 2007.

He is currently listed by the association as an “active” member in “good standing.”

The first son pays $331 yearly to maintain his active membership in the bar, though he has never actively practiced law in DC.

Hunter held an “of counsel” position at the Democratic law firm of Boies Schiller Flexner LLP while his father was vice president.

A Delaware jury found Hunter guilty of three felony counts last week related to lying about his crack cocaine addiction on a government form while illegally purchasing a firearm.

He is also facing multiple felony counts out of California stemming from allegations that he dodged more than $1 million in income taxes which helped finance years of “extravagant” living.

Hunter’s lawyer did not respond to The Post’s request for comment.
