Misappropriations Draw License Revocation

The Iowa Supreme Court has revoked the license of an attorney who misappropriated settlement proceeds in two personal injury matters.

The court made clear its view of the violations:

We do not tolerate this kind of misconduct from Iowa lawyers...In light of the misappropriations of client funds for personal use, we do not address the numerous other disciplinary violations against [the attorney]. To do so is simply unnecessary. Based on the proven misappropriations of client funds for his personal use, we revoke the license of [the attorney] to practice law in this state.

The attorney defaulted on the bar charges. (Mike Frisch)
