Ten Days to Produce Documents

A judge warned a metro-east attorney accused of taking money from a disabled adult under his care that he will be arrested if he doesn't produce financial documents within 10 days.

John F. Pawloski had been ordered to bring to court delinquent financial documents for three cases -- the guardianship case in which he is accused of taking $6,300 of his ward's money and two estate cases. Pawloski lawyer, Van-Lear Eckert, said doing so "might incriminate him in some future criminal proceedings."

Pawloski has not been charged criminally in the cases.

This attorney is stupid. His mistake was flaunting ARDC, which is the "HIGHER POWER" for attorneys. The obvious $$$$$$ amount is small compared to what many of us know is common.

When bored, go the ARDC site and read complaints. It is enlightening, especially as you realize that very few complaints make it to the board.

Reading the dirt helps one realize the law, which is helpful.

And what will the court do with these three cases? A thorough investigation, I hope.

Pawloski is an embarrassment for the legal profession
