Former Federal Defender Charged With Ethics Violations

As a former federal public defender, I was distressed to see charges filed by the Illinois ARDC  alleging that a federal public defender accepted a fee in violation of the personnel rules that prohibit outside employment. The attorney was employed as an FPD from 1979 to 2007, a total of 28 years of service. It is further alleged that the fee was not properly escrowed, that the attorney failed to perform the legal services and that he did not promptly return the unearned fee. He is also alleged to have made false statements in the bar investigation. (Mike Frisch)
