Disbarment For Trust Account Violations

The Nebraska Supreme Court disbarred an attorney who had accepted monthly $275 payments from a client in order to negotiate with and pay the client's creditors. The lawyer did not deal with the creditors. The amount to be held exceeded $4,000 and the lawyer did not account to or return the funds to the client. The lawyer also had failed to participate in the disciplinary case brought after the client complained. (Mike Frisch)
