The Maryland Court of Appeals has issued an opinion explained its May 2, 2013 order of disbarment of an attorney.
The attorney had failed to pay employee withholding taxes, knowingly misappropriated fees and other trust funds, failed to supervise a non-attorney employee and provided false information to Bar Counsel.
The employee was hired to assist the attorney's office manager and was later promoted to the office manager position. At the time she was hired, she was eighteen years old with prior work experience at Burger King. (Mike Frisch)
