One From The Heart

The Maryland Court of Appeals has disbarred an attorney whose most serious violation involved the submission of false documents in defense of the disciplinary charges.

According to the court, the "heart of [the attorney's] derelictions" was her "deliberate submission of false, adulterated documents intended to cover up the other violations."

The court rejected the attorney's attack on the findings below, which accepted the testimony of former clients and found the accused attorney's explanations incredible. (Mike Frisch)
