A contractor bilked out of more than a half million dollars by a Cape attorney is getting his money back, reports the Cape Cod Times.
It’s the second largest award ever granted by the Massachusetts Clients Security Board, a quasi state panel that makes good on money stolen from attorneys’ clients.
Norman Sasville, 63, of Middleboro was awarded $656,000 by the state board. He’s one of 92 clients awarded $2.4 million by the board this year, according to a press release issued this week.
The board, which the Supreme Judicial Court established 35 years ago to restore a level of trust in the legal profession, uses money from a $300 fee licensed attorneys pay annually.
