An attorney admitted to practice in 1999 sought to build a practice by associating with an entity that modified mortgage loans throught the country.
Instead, he got disbarred by the Kansas Supreme Court.
The court rejected his request for an indefinite suspension for both client-related misconduct and his dealings with non-lawyers:
Respondent took money from thousands of distressed and vulnerable mortgagors; he gave most of that money to non-lawyers and did nothing on behalf of the mortgagors...disbarment is the appropriate sanction.
The misconduct is set forth in a 44 page opinion. (Mike Frisch)
