(Bankr. E.D. Ky. Oct. 29, 2014)
The bankruptcy court enters orders sanctioning attorneys Brady and Porter for multiple violations of their professional duties and responsibilities. The attorneys failed to adequately represent clients prior to and after filing bankruptcy petitions, took thousands of dollars from clients and failed to account for funds or timely file petitions, and allowed non-attorney staff to counsel clients and file court documents without appropriate supervision. The court determines that the chapter 13 bankruptcy of one of the attorneys did not prevent the entry of the order for sanctions. The orders require reimbursement of client funds, monetary sanctions, and permanent prohibition of practice in this bankruptcy court. Opinion below.
