All In The Family

The Illinois ARDC has filed disciplinary charges charging two lawyers as co-respondents in alleged misconduct in connection with real estate transactions. According to the charges, one lawyer had a prior relationship with two people who operated businesses that offered mortgage broker services and handled foreclosures. The lawyer set up his law practice within the offices of the clients. He employed a paralegal and hired a lawyer (also charged) as an independent contractor. The two lawyers are brothers-in-law. The multi-count charges allege conflicts of interest, breach of fiduciary duties, dishonesty and failure to supervise the paralegal. The junior lawyer is also charged with criminal conduct for false notarizations. (Mike Frisch)
