The spouse of Democrat state Rep. Brianna Titone of Arvada has been temporarily suspended from practicing law in Colorado for fabricating a document to cover up misconduct.
The Denver Post eventually mentioned the news in a report detailing four lawyer suspensions, including a separate matter detailing attorney Richard Howieson’s troubles for sending a nude picture of himself to a Jefferson County sheriff’s deputy who was posing as a 14-year-old girl.
Seems like they buried the lede: “Also suspended from practicing law was Elysia Hassebroek Titone, who is married to Colorado state Rep. Brianna Titone, D-Arvada.”#copolitics @COpeakpolitics @cologop https://t.co/1XqevDwnWH

Concerning lawyer Elysia Hassebroek Titone, the Denver Post eventually reports:
In early 2019, one of her clients couldn’t get in touch with her, according to a conditional admission of misconduct, and she was investigated by disciplinary authorities for potentially improperly abandoning her client’s representation.
Elysia Hassebroek Titone gave authorities a termination letter she claimed to have sent the client. However, she later admitted she fabricated that letter, according to the admission of misconduct.
Titone declined to comment on her six month suspension to the Post.
