The ARDC Accuses A Lawyer of Converting $80,000 From An Elderly Client – Elder Abuse

BEFORE THE HEARING BOARD.

This is a disciplinary complaint filed by the ARDC against a lawyer. The ARDC alleges that the 93 year old client entrusted $80,000 to the lawyer. The lawyer used $79,963 of the funds for his own expenses and did not use any of the money for the benefit of the elderly client. Elder abuse is a fast-growing area of the attorney discipline regime.

This is a complaint only. It has not been proven. If true, it is a dreadful story.
