Helping Client Hide Assets, Misusing Them Brings Lawyer Disbarment
Deputy Ethics Counsel Melissa Czartoryski says she changed strategy for the Supreme Court arguments. "I wanted the court to focus not on the client and his funds," but on the client's wife, she says.
Czartoryski says it's unusual for the court to let months pass from argument and then not issue an opinion.
Up until the disbarment, Malvone had been practicing solo, part time and under a proctor's supervision.
