A Four Year Career Ends In Disbarment

The Maryland Court of Appeals has disbarred an attorney admitted to practice in 2008.

The attorney was found in violation of multuple ethics rules in three complaints. One of the matters involved her failure of provide competent representation to a number of homeless clients. The matters were accepted by the attorney on a pro bono basis through the Homeless Persons Representation Project and involved expungement petitions that were time-sensitive.

The attorney had entered into a diversion agreement with the Bar but failed to honor its terms. She also had made false statements to Bar Counsel and failed to respond to the bar complaints. (Mike Frisch)

What a failure for this attorney. Well, She must have waited long enough to get this profession, but still it will be lost in this kind of wrongdoing. Lesson learned to all indeed.
