    JOEL ALAN BRODSKY, Wilmette: Brodsky, who was licensed in 1982, was suspended for three months. In order to close a probate estate's bank account and receive the funds, he signed the dead executor's name to bank documents needed to release the funds.

    when you really have no more to say about the suspect…try his attorney

    On May 8, 2001 the Administrator filed a one-count complaint against Respondent Joel Alan Brodsky alleging that he forged a signature on bank forms in order to withdraw client funds from the bank, falsely endorsed a cashier’s check issued by the bank, failed to deposit the proceeds in a separate identifiable trust account and kept the funds for his own purposes. He was charged with the following misconduct:

    conversion;

    failure to deposit and maintain client funds in a separate identifiable trust account in violation of Rule 1.15(a) and 1.15(d) of the Illinois Rules of Professional Conduct;

    committing a criminal act that reflects adversely on the lawyer’s honesty, trustworthiness or fitness as a lawyer by committing the

    PAGE 2:

    crime of forgery in violation of 720 ILCS 5/17-3 in violation of Rule 8.4(a)(3);

    conduct involving dishonesty, fraud, deceit or misrepresentation in violation of Rule 8.4(a)(4);

    conduct which tends to defeat the administration of justice or bring the courts or legal profession into disrepute in violation of Supreme Court Rule 771.

    he was only suspended 3 months for this…have fun, bloggers

    I like this one -- it shows character. He filed Chapter 7 and tried to discharge attorney fees awarded to his wife from his divorce.

    Good info Jaded. I just posted on another thread that there must not have been any good takers from Drews plea for an attorney. That Drew must have found this one at the local Bolingbrook strip mall. Located in between the tanning salon and the dollar store.

    If I were in DP's shoes, I certainly would not want an attorney who had previous disciplinary charges of forgery and theft. I looked up the cases that he cites on his firm profile and only one of them is a criminal matter. The rest were civil.

    I feel the same way, Jaded! I bet he is still hoping for a high powered attorney to take his case.
