A Tucson attorney has been put on probation for two years by the Arizona Supreme Court for violating rules of professional conduct, documents show.

Roberto Salazar, of the firm Salazar Law Firm PLLC, was reprimanded for violating rules on three occasions, according to an order from the presiding disciplinary judge of the Arizona Supreme Court.

In one violation, Salazar did not attend a status conference, respond to a motion to compel or respond to a motion for summary judgment. That resulted in a judgment being entered against a client.

In the other violations, Salazar did not accurately complete paperwork required for immigration clients and he issued a check to a client that was returned for insufficient funds.

He was ordered to pay $1,200 to the State Bar for costs and expenses incurred during its investigation. He also has to attend in the Bar’s office management and continuing legal education courses.
