Nearly 300 Violations Get Attorney Permanently Disbarred

The Ohio Supreme Court has permanently disbarred an attorney who was admitted in 2002 "based upon findings that [the attorney] had failed to answer disciplinary counsel's 30-count complaint and has committed nearly 300 violations of the [ethical and court rules]..."

The misconduct "spanned more than four and a half years and involved numerous instances of missappropriation, totalling more than $35,000."

A master commissioner had found no mitigating factors. Although the attorney had serious mental-health and addiction issues, there was no evidence of treatment or recovery.

The attorney was suspended in  April 2011 based on the allegations. (Mike Frisch)
