Forged Contract Results In Conviction, Disbarment

A Colorado Hearing Board has disbarred an attorney who sued his former law firm for money the firm allegedly owed him for work performed. He filed as evidence a purported contract signed by his employer. The employer's signature was a forgery.

The attorney was convicted of three offenses related to the conduct. The hearing board found that the conviction was conclusive evidence of the ethical violations. (Mike Frisch)
