02-OLR-03 In Re: Charles E. Brady, Attorney at Law

“Where attorney Charles E. Brady, while his law practice owner was away on vacation, drew a total of six checks on the law office business checking account made payable to himself or to cash totaling more than $4,000, he reported to the practice owner immediately upon his return from vacation and Brady self-reported his financial misconduct to the Office of Lawyer Regulation, we conclude that by writing six checks totaling $4,000 to himself or to cash on the law office checking account, by stamping the signature of his employer, Mr. Bartholomew, on the checks, and in negotiating the checks for his personal use, all without Mr. Bartholomew’s authorization or approval, Mr. Brady violated SCR 20:8.4(c), which states that it is professional misconduct for a lawyer to engage in conduct involving dishonesty, fraud, deceit or misrepresentation.”

Accordingly, in accordance with SCR 21.09(2), the court ordered attorney Brady publicly reprimanded.
