Detrimental Reliance

An attorney who relied on his paralegal to handle a client's divorce was suspended for nine months by the Colorado Presiding Disciplinary Judge.

The last six-months was suspended in favor of probation for two years.

The case was dismissed and the paralegal provided a forged divorce decree to the client.

The client then took another spouse, in the mistaken belief that the prior marriage was over. (Mike Frisch)
