The New Hampshire Supreme Court accepted the consent disbarment of an attorney who was admitted in 1971 and had no prior discipline.
The recommendation of the Professional Conduct Committee lays out the case, which started due to an overdraft notification from the attorney's trust account and resulting compliance report.
The misconduct involved misappropriation of the funds of the estate of a longtime client who had died without living heirs, false statements to court in the probate matter and in the bar investigation, false trust account compliance reports and incompetence. (Mike Frisch)
