The Ballad Of Marvin And Myrna

In orders linked here and here, the Pennsylvania Supreme Court disbarred the husband and suspended the wife for a year and a day. They practiced as a firm ( Galfand & Galfand) since around 2000.

In 2006, the husband was suspended. The wife continued to practice under the firm name until 2009. The wife assisted in the husband's unauthorized practice of law, including an arbitration hearing where they represented themselves as law partners (he did most of the talking). There was a complaint filed under M. Galfand (both husband and wife have first names that start with that initial) that contained phone numbers for both of them.

It appears that the misconduct came to light during the course of the hearing of the husband's petition for reinstatement. (Mike Frisch)
