Serenity (And Disbarment) Now!

The Maryland Court of Appeals has determined that disbarment is the appropriate sanction for an attorney who had misappropriated client funds in the form of advanced fees and abandoned his practice.

The attorney was the subject of two complaints.

One involved a client who retained him in a breach of contract action against an entity the client claimed to have hired to patent a "golf ball finder" device; the other to defend a suit brought by the Secutities & Exchange Commission.

The attorney's name is Frank Costanzo. (Mike Frisch)
