Brother-In-Law

The Illinois Administrator has filed a complaint alleging that an attorney facilitated the unauthorized practice of an attorney who had been suspended by the Illinois Supreme Court:

 At all times relevant to this complaint,  Respondent was [suspended attorney] Reich’s brother-in-law.

As of November 19, 2013, or shortly thereafter,  Respondent knew that Reich was suspended from the practice of law and was not  authorized to hold himself out as an attorney or practice in Illinois at all  times between December 10, 2012 and June 10, 2013.

On or about December 10, 2012, Respondent  offered to hire Reich as a paralegal at the rate of $100.00/hour to assist  Respondent in legal matters including real estate transactions and estate  planning.

Between December 12, 2012 and March 2013, with  Respondent’s knowledge, authority, and assistance, Reich engaged in numerous  activities [alleged to have involved the unauthorized practice of law]...

It is further alleged that the attorney paid legal fees to Reich. . (Mike Frisch)
