LAS VEGAS (AP) — The Nevada Supreme Court has suspended a Las Vegas criminal defense lawyer who awaits sentencing after pleading guilty to felony forgery and false instrument charges in a courthouse counseling scheme.

A three-justice panel temporarily suspended attorney Brian Bloomfield on Tuesday on and referred his case to the State Bar of Nevada for possible disbarment.

Bloomfield became a member of the state Bar in 2003.

He and his lawyer, William Terry, didn't immediately respond Wednesday to messages.

Bloomfield pleaded guilty in December in Clark County District Court in a case alleging that he and several others falsified court documents showing that defendants completed court-ordered counseling and community service.

Bloomfield continued defending clients in court while cooperating with prosecutors in his case.

The suspension was first reported by the Las Vegas Review-Journal.
