Conservator Appointed for Suspended Lawyer, Lee Acquista
The Disciplinary Board of the state Supreme Court had asked for the conservator for the lawyer, Lee Acquista. President Judge Ernest J. DiSantis Jr. approved the request at a brief hearing.
Acquista did not attend, but his Pittsburgh-based lawyer sent DiSantis a letter in which he said Acquista consented to the conservatorship. The conservator is another local lawyer, Adam Williams, who will notify Acquista's clients and advise them on whether they need to hire new counsel.
