The North Carolina State Bar has filed a complaint alleging misconduct in his representation of two clients.
The complaint contends that the attorney was retained by client EPV to sue defendant LTH as a result of a car accident. It is alleged that the attorney not only represented LTH in three unrelated matters while the EPV suit was pending without the knowledge or consent of EPV, but also engaged in sexual relations with LTH.
The complaint states that the attorney advised EPV of the conflict when he presented her with a settlement check. (Mike Frisch)
