Peter, Paul And A Bedridden Romantic Partner

The Ohio Supreme Court has accepted the resignation of an attorney with a pending disciplinary investigation.

CantonRep,com reported on the allegations

The Ohio Supreme Court has immediately and indefinitely suspended the law license of Jackson Township-based attorney Edward Langenbach "Lang" D'Atri.

The court took the action Tuesday after the Stark County Bar Association last week filed a motion seeking an immediate suspension alleging that D'Atri, who focuses on probates, trusts and estates, "poses a substantial threat of serious harm to the public."

The motion accuses D'Atri of misspending hundreds of thousands of dollars in his clients trusts. And it says D'Atri would take money from one client trust and use it to replenish funds in another trust owned by another client. It also alleges that D'Atri developed a romantic relationship with a 72-year-old "bedridden" client, who's the executor of a $1.2 million estate.

As of Wednesday, no criminal charges had been filed against D'Atri.

A message seeking comment was left on D'Atri's work phone and cellphone.

The motion filed by the Stark County Bar Association said D'Atri's attorney, Craig Pelini, did not object to the suspension. Pelini declined to comment.
