From Attorney To Nurse

The Ohio Supreme Court has imposed a one-year suspension of a sole practicioner who also was employed as a nurse.

The attorney working primarily as a nurse and not taking on new clients, but kept her trust account open. She deposited her nursing paychecks into the trust account and used the money to pay personal expenses. 

A series of overdrafts brought her to the attention of the Bar. The misconduct was exacerbated by her non-participation in the disciplinary proceedings.

The court held that the use of the trust account to pay personal expenses involved commingling. (Mike Frisch)
