The consistent theme for August 2022, and indeed most months, is Florida lawyers theft of client funds and settlement funds.
Lawyers Above the Law: There's a whole load more thievin' Florida attorneys in April who are sanctioned but not referred for criminal prosecution.
Once again, the disparity in sanctions by the Florida Bar Disciplinary cases appears dependent on who you know and/or your wealth.
On Sep 1, 2021, the Florida Bar Disciplined 10 lawyers and on Sep 15, another 17. That's 27 lawyers in one month.
Florida Supreme Court disciplined 21 attorneys in Aug 2021. Stealing from clients along with alcohol and drug crimes dominated discipline.
