Illinois Bar Charges

The Illinois Administrator has filed disciplinary complaints in two matters. One complaint alleges that the attorney wrote a will for a client a month after the client had surgery for brain cancer. The lawyer and his spouse were designated beneficiaries. The charges recite that the designation was pursuant to client's wishes but affected the validity of the will due to the alleged failure to advise the client to seek independant counsel. The second (unrelated) matter involves charges relating to a criminal conviction for the possession and reproduction of child pornography. (Mike Frisch)
