Lake Worth Attorney Gone Walkabout?

 
He took only khaki shorts, a sleeping bag, a lantern -- oh yeah, and possibly $6 million in client funds:
McCabe’s Lake Worth firm, which does foreclosure defense and other real estate-related work, is also allegedly missing millions of dollars from client escrow accounts and company coffers.
McCabe, 55, of Boca Raton, was reported missing April 5 by his wife. The Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office, Boca Raton Police Department and the Florida Bar are also investigating the disappearance.
The good news is Avvo still gives him a 6.5 (good) rating!

  3. None of the blogs commented on the biggest local law story. Lewis and Tein are toast.

  5. She's not paying anything back for the instant case. She is paying back fees from her prior criminal case, not this one.

    Very bad news for Lewis and Tein.

    Hard to see how Dresnick doesn't find perjury.

  7. That herald article did more to clarify this for me than all the postings! she is repaying money but she did not "personally" initially pay it. I dont thng judge dresnick will be happy with that game.

  8. Go ahead and call me stupid but if there is no contract, then how did the clients know how much they were going to pay?
