An attorney who had engaged in misappropriation, abandoned his practice and "engages in illegal activity including the purchase, possession and use of controlled dangerous substances and continues to deny the serious nature of his drug abuse" was disbarred by the Maryland Court of Appeals.
The matter was initially brought to the bar's attention by his landlord when his clients could not find him.
He was referred to a bar-sponsored program by judges when he failed to appear in court but did not follow through on the referral.
He also failed to follow treatment conditions imposed in criminal matters against him.
Finally, he failed to appear for jury duty. (Mike Frisch)
