Second Bar Case Results In Disbarment

An attorney who had recently been indefinitely suspended was disbarred by the Maryland Court of Appeals. The misconduct in both matters was similar-- failing to escrow and spending an unearned fee for personal purposes and failing to respond to the bar complaint. The attorney also violated a number of ethical rules in the handling of divorce matters. One matter involved a petition to modify a custody order and for ex parte relief. The lawyer claimed that a hearing on the motions had been set when it had not. (Mike Frisch)
