The Louisiana Attorney Disciplinary Board has concluded that a hearing committee's proposed sanction of disbarment should be raised to permanent disbarment:
In accepting fees from her clients and failing to provide services, Respondent has intentionally converted funds from numerous sources causing injury to multiple clients. By abandoning her law practice, she has caused serious injury to her clients. She has knowingly failed to perform services for her clients and has engaged in a clear pattern of neglect with respect to client matters. Respondent continued to operate as an attorney although she was placed on interim suspension from the practice of law...
The board also recommended restitution. (Mike Frisch)
