California Attorney Disbarred for Sham Marriage to 85 Year Old Client

A California attorney is facing disbarment for her allegedly sham marriage to her 85-year-old client (she’s 54), where she got $339,000 and he was cremated after his death – in direct contradiction to his intentions as set forth in his will.

The Judge reported the attorney "took advantage of a lonely, sick old man" and thwarted his intent to transfer his estate to his nieces.

Financial elder abuse comes in all shapes and sizes.
