ARDC Review Board Recommends Five Month Suspension for Lawyer Whose Trust Account Fell Short

Filed March 17:

This is an opinion of the ARDC Review Board, in which it recommended a five-month suspension for an attorney whose trust account fell short of required balances on several occasions. Further, the lawyer was slow in distributing settlement checks to two clients.

The lawyer avoided more serious discipline by taking responsibility for his actions, putting in new procedures to make sure that his trust account was properly handled and cooperating with the ARDC investigation.
