Dispute Leads To Consent Disbarment

An attorney who had been hired in August 2006 to run the Maryland office of the law firm of Kimmel & Silverman was the subject of a series of articles in the Daily Record (linked here and here). The Pennsylvania-based consumer law firm and the attorney disputed whether there was adequate support for the volume of cases for which representation had been undertaken. A number of the cases had been dismissed with prejudice. The Maryland Court of Appeals issued an order today accepting the attorney's consent to disbarment. Thus, it is likely that the question of the relative culpability of the lawyer and the firm will not be resolved. (Mike Frisch)
