Listed below are links to weblogs that reference Legal Profession Blog:
Disbarment seems a bit harsh for conduct which the attorney corrected on becoming aware of the violation prior to the disciplinary proceeding. So the disciplinary proceeding resulted from the attorney's own call to a bar run ethics hotline? That's not a very good precedent. And I also fail to see the relevance of unrelated events which took place more than 27 years ago.
As for the clients as victims, it is possible that they were, but the issue would be very fact specific. If they did in fact receive good advice and a good settlement, it is difficult to see them as victims. No, the real "victims" here appear to be the state bar and its members' monopoly on the practice of law.
