Facing criminal charges and violating the rules of professional conduct for lawyers is apparently not enough reason for Hunter Biden to cease being a member "in good standing" of the D.C. Bar Association.
The president's son faces two charges for willful failure to pay federal income taxes, in addition to having to reach an agreement over a felony weapons charge, and all of this is added to the doubt about his abstinence from drugs. However, Hunter Biden is still listed on the D.C. Bar's website as a member in "good standing."
It is worth noting that the fact that Hunter continues to appear this way contradicts professional rules of conduct. The association has established that committing criminal acts will be considered misconduct, including those "involving fraud and the offense of willful failure to file an income tax return."

Under the rules, a member can also be excluded for being able to "state or imply an ability to influence improperly a government agency or official," which is under investigation after an IRS whistleblower said that Biden threatened a Chinese trading partner in 2017 with a text message informing him that he was sitting next to his father, Joe Biden.
Suspended from the Connecticut Bar
Although the president's son remains an active member of the Connecticut Bar Association, this association has administratively suspended him and has remained so since 2021 for "failure to pay the Client Security Fund fee."
According to a Breitbart report, Hunter must pay the $75 imposed on each attorney and another $75 reinstatement fee to return to practice law in that state.
