Forced Retirement?

An attorney admitted in 1957 was suspended by New York Appellate Division for the First Judicial Department for his lack of cooperation in a series of disciplinary investigations. The attorney is the subject of four complaints from three clients and "has not disputed the allegations in the complaints that he failed to perform the work necessary on the various matters and that he had promised to refund the legal fees." The attorney had claimed a variety of physical problems, but had "provided little documentation in support...While not unmindful of [his] age, we note that he continues to hold himself out as an attorney and has collected fees for legal work he has failed to complete."
