Default Attorney retirement age

Is there any state that has an age by which attorneys must retire?

Can a 93 year old practice law still?

No.

Law firms may have mandatory retirement ages but a lawyer working on his own (or who owns the firm) can work as long as he likes.

Yes.

Are you having an issue with a 93 year old lawyer? Perhaps he's working for the other side and beating the pants off you?

There is no compulsory retirement age for lawyers but they can retire from practicing law upon their wish at any age.

Think of how old those US Supreme Court judges are in many cases.
For better or for worse.

You just have to put in your two cents even when the question has already been answered...

I was just threatened with a lawsuit by someone disagreeing with me on Facebook I prominently posted his threats, and threatened to report him to the state bar association. He blocked our correspondence and deleted his posts. I have not heard from him since.
