Not Tom Roe, Now Disbarred

The South Carolina Supreme Court accepted a proposed consent discipline and disbarred an attorney.

The attorney admitted a number of ethical violations, including unauthorized practice while suspended.

The attorney worked for a law firm that employed a law student named Richard Thomas Roe. Mr. Roe was later admitted to the South Carolina Bar.

While suspended, the attorney created a fictitous law firm called "Roe Law LLC." He engaged in practice while suspended using the alias Tom Roe. In a workers compensation case, he entered an appearence as Tom Roe using an email account that included "tomroelaw@" in the address.

He falsely identified himself twice as Tom Roe to the South Carolina Bar in requesting a change in his listed bar address and appeared at a workers compensation hearing as Tom Roe, using the real Mr. Roe's bar number. (Mike Frisch)
