A former divorce lawyer involved in the San Francisco Bay area’s “dirty DUI” police scandal has been sentenced to two years in prison for illegally eavesdropping on her clients’ estranged spouses and evading taxes. Mary Nolan was sentenced to 2 years in prison, lost her law license, and had to pay $469,000.00 in unpaid income tax. She hired a private investigator (also now in prison) to install listening devices in the cars of her client’s estranged spouses to help in divorce and child custody cases. She also arranged for the private investigator to have attractive women approach the estranged husbands in bars and get them intoxicated. When the man would get behind the wheel, the private investigator would call the police to report them as drunk drivers.
Ethical Michigan Criminal Defense Attorney
Ethics are important to the practice of law. An attorney must be above reproach. An attorney who is respectable and respected in the legal community where they practice will benefit a person charged with a crime far more than an attorney who is not. Attorneys with a reputation for being aggressive, yet ethical, get the benefit of the doubt in court. The attorneys at LEWIS & DICKSTEIN, P.L.L.C. take ethics very seriously and operate at the highest standards of professionalism.
