LINCOLN — The Nebraska Supreme Court on Friday disciplined an Omaha attorney who took a client’s money but did not do the work promised.

The court ordered David N. Steier to be suspended for three months and placed on probation, with monitoring, for 12 months.

According to the court order, a client paid Steier $800 in November 2012 for his help in incorporating a business and applying for tax-exempt status.

In late 2013, the client discovered that Steier had not done any of the work. He demanded the case file and his money back. According to the court, Steier turned over the file and attempted to return some of the fees.
