Plethora Of Threats Get Attorney Suspended

The web page of the North Carolina state Bar reports on an interim suspension:

The chair of the DHC entered an interim suspension of the law license of Hickory lawyer David Shawn Clark. The chair found that Clark pled guilty in Catawba County Superior Court to two counts of misdemeanor communicating threats and one count of common law obstruction of justice; engaged in a sexual relationship with a client; asked the client to lie and deny the sexual relationship so Clark could defend against an alienation of affection lawsuit threatened by the client’s husband; when the client refused to lie, threatened her with losing custody of her children; threatened to kill his legal secretary after she refused to lie about her knowledge of the sexual relationship between Clark and his client; made false statements in the defamation lawsuit he filed against his client; revealed his client’s confidential information; and made false statements to the Grievance Committee.

The attorney's answer to bar charges is linked here. (Mike Frisch)
