A Conflict Of Interest

The Maryland Court of Appeals disbarred a lawyer who had continued to practice after his decertification for failure to pay the annual Maryland client security fund assessment. Also, the attorney had been arrested as a passenger in a car from which marijuana, cocaine and a weapon had been seized. After the charges against the lawyer were nolle prossed, he entered his appearence as counsel for a charged defendant in the same incident. The court found the representation to involve a prohibited conflict of interest. The lawyer defaulted in the bar discipline case. (Mike Frisch)
