Timothy T. Nipper, an Eden Prairie lawyer convicted six times since 2006 for criminal offenses that included disorderly conduct, drunken driving and violating no-contact orders, was suspended on Thursday for at least 90 days, according to Supreme Court order last week.
At least one disorderly conduct conviction and three no-contact violations related to a girlfriend or her family, an Office of Lawyers Professional Responsibility petition stated.
Nipper also failed to communicate with a client or refund an unearned retainer, the petition said.
Before reinstatement, Nipper must comply with chemical-dependency and psychological treatment plans. If reinstated he must provide regular urine samples, remain law abiding, comply with terms of his criminal probation and pass the professional responsibility portion of the state bar exam.
