The New York Appellate Division for the Third Judicial Department has disbarred an attorney convicted of tax and conspiracy to defraud the United States offenses:
At the time of Respondent's crimes, he was an attorney and principal at a major international accounting firm with offices in many cities, including New York City. The crimes involved millions of dollars. Under all of the circumstances presented, we conclude that respondent should be disbarred.
The New York Times reported that he had been a partner at BDO Seidman. (Mike Frisch)
