A Friend In Need

An attorney who employs a disbarred lawyer runs a significant risk of accusations of aiding unauthorized practice. The Illinois Review Board recently filed a report finding that the attorney had engaged in conduct prejudicial to the administration of justice through such an employment arrangement (the disbarred lawyer was a close friend). The board affirmed a hearing panel finding that the conduct "created the possibility that the public's regard for the effectiveness of the disciplinary process would be lessened." Misconduct was also found in two client matters, leaded to recommended suspension of one year. (Mike Frisch)
