Overbilling Draws Suspension

An attorney who overbilled public agencies in two states for his court-appointed services to indigent children was suspended for four years by the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court.

The summary on the web page recites that the attorney submitted "inaccurate, and greatly inflated, and/or simply false" billing statements over a period of years.

He billed 3,642.5 hours in 2008 and 3,826.25 hours in 2009.

That comes to roughly ten hours a day every day, including weekends and holidays.

The attorney entered into a restitution agreement and will not be eligible for reinstatement until the obligation is repaid. (Mike Frisch)
