Jailhouse (Disbarred) Attorney

A Florida attorney disbarred in 1991 has found the practice of law a hard habit to break.

In 1995, on evidence of continuing practice, the Florida Supreme Court "permanantly and perpetually" restrained him from further practice.

The medicine did not take and, in 2005, the court found him in contempt of the disbarment order for continuing to practice. He served ten days of a sixty-day jail sentence.

Well, jail was no cure. He opened up a business called the All Florida Legal Clinic and called himself a "retired" attorney. He was caught charging for legal advice.

The court today found him in indirect contempt and has ordered him to surrender to a 60-day jail term in the next five days. (Mike Frisch)
