Reynolds entered a plea of no contest to allegations that he failed to hold property of his clients or third persons separate from his own property, and deposited his own funds into a client trust account in excess of an amount reasonably necessary to pay financial institution charges or fees or to obtain a waiver of service charges or fees.

Reynolds and the Grievance Administrator filed a stipulation for a consent order of discipline, which the Attorney Grievance Commission approved and ADB Tri-County Hearing Panel #56 accepted.
