Singing With The Choir, Readmitted To Practice

The Vermont Supreme Court has reinstated an attorney who was disbarred for misappropration and commingling of trust funds.

The petitioner was randomly chosen for a trust audit.

He initially provided false information in the ensuing bar inquiry. He eventually admitted that he had a "poor concept of money."

After his disbarment, the petitioner was kept on as guardian of five probate court acccounts that were brought to conclusion without incident. He has served as a volunteer with several organizations and "sings in [his] church choir and has taken a leadership role with the choir."

Indeed, "[the choir director] was impressed with [petitioner's] handling of a situation in the choir when the group decided to purchase leather bound hymnals which [he] knew to be a financial burden to some members of the choir. [He] worked to make sure that all could have the books." (Mike Frisch)
