PHOENIX (CBS5) -

A Phoenix attorney has been put on probation for a second time for a list of violations, according to the Arizona State Bar.

The State Bar of Arizona spokesman Alberto Rodriguez said on Aug. 29, the Presiding Disciplinary Judge (PDJ) ordered that David J. Wolf be reprimanded.

Rodriguez said Wolf let a mentally ill client live with him while he was representing her in a drug case. 

The State Bar of Arizona said the investigation found that Wolf missed court dates. He claimed his secretary was the problem.

Wolf also failed to request and get the client's mental health treatment records and declined to seek a psychological evaluation even though his client requested it.

The State Bar said Wolf's underage secretary made a fake ID for herself by copying the client's driver's license and having the address changed. When Wolf learned of the incident, the secretary had already been fired for filing and scheduling lapses.

In November 2011, Wolf received a one-year suspension which he served but has yet to begin reinstatement procedures or serve the two-year probation that includes his participation in the Bar's Law Office Management Assistance Program (LOMAP).
