In a nearby suburb, an attorney was suspended for five years after admitting to taking money from his firm, lying to a court that a client agreed to settle a lawsuit filed against her, and neglecting clients after starting his own firm. Given the full story, I would have disbarred him.
I checked him out on several online ratings services and learned that he is a “Super Lawyer” an Avvo four star lawyer, and the recipient of other accolades. This guy has been in trouble since at least 2013. You can’t trust those ratings.
