Legal malpractice and negligence

Are law firms required to alert client if attorney working on case gets fired and later suspend by bar?

Attorney working on my case was fired, firm told me they just let him go. Later I found out (online) that he was actually suspended. Was my firm required to alert me of this because if they had I probably would have hired a different firm.

If the attorney was suspended prior to you retaining the firm, that could be a huge problem. If he was suspended after you retained the firm, it is unlikely to be too big an issue since you are hiring the firm, not the attorney. It of course depends on whether there are other attorneys at the firm.
