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.
