SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - A Utah attorney has been barred from practicing law in Utah for the next three years after several clients complained about him to the Utah State Bar.

An August settlement agreement says at least 20 clients have complained about North Salt Lake-based attorney Sean Young.

Young admitted to violating attorney rules in four cases, and the Utah State Bar’s Office of Professional Conduct agreed to drop 16 other complaints.

Young says though he admitted to the violations, he doesn’t agree with them and isn’t liable for them under the terms of a settlement he signed.

The complaints include Young failing to contact witnesses in a death penalty case, not filing or asking for documents in other proceedings, not meeting with a client he was representing and not refunding fees to clients in a timely way.
