High-Flying Attorney Disbarred

The tough-on-crime Maryland Court of Appeals has disbarred an attorney who misrepresented facts to a tribunal and administrative law judge "in order to secure a postponement" and failed to correct the misrepresentations at a later hearing in the matter.

He had implied that he was at the hospital for epilepsy treatment; in fact, he was attending the birth of his child.

The attorney also commingled personal and client money in two trust accounts and failed to properly supervise a non-lawyer employee (who also was the mother of the aforementioned child).

He had previously been reprimanded "for using marijuana on an airplane, for transporting drug paraphenalia on the flight, and for making statements that could be construed by others as a claim by him to be a police officer." (Mike Frisch)
