A Pensacola attorney was disbarred by the Florida Supreme Court last month for mishandling numerous veterans' guardianship and probate cases.
The court found that [Mary McDowell] Callaway, who has practiced law in Florida since 1975, had engaged in gross misconduct while handling multiple veterans' cases. Numerous times while in practice, Callaway was cited for failing or refusing to file timely financial accounting of veterans' assets.
She also neglected clients in numerous cases, and was found in contempt of court or removed as guardian 22 times, according to The Florida Bar.
Callaway had been suspended from practicing law since 2007, when the court granted an emergency petition for suspension filed by the Florida Bar.
According to the Florida Bar, Callaway was one of 21 Florida attorneys disciplined by the court in recent months.
