The Washington State Supreme Court has disbarred an attorney who
...willfully and fraudulently concealed assets and submitted false filings in the bankruptcy of his wife and her corporation. His innocent explanations for these actions failed to persuade the hearing officer or the Board, and we reject them. Given the severity and willfulness of his pattern of misconduct, and his refusal to accept responsibility for his actions, disbarment is the correct sanction and not disproportionate.
The attorney was disbarred in 1982 for a weapons offense and suspended in 2012. (Mike Frisch)
