Texas Bar Moves To Pull Attorney's Ticket To Practice Law Over Alleged $1M+ Trust Account Ripoff

In Jefferson County, Texas, The Southeast Texas Record reports:

  • The Commission for Lawyer Discipline, an arm of the State Bar of Texas, has filed a second petition to suspend the practice of Beaumont attorney Kip Lamb.

    The first petition was filed July 10 in Jefferson County District Court. The second was filed Dec. 17.

    According to the petitions, on April 14, 2008, Lamb received $1,094,611.02 into his trust account as his client’s (New Life Tabernacle Church) portion of a settlement.

    Lamb later transferred the funds to other bank accounts for his own personal use and his law firm’s use, the petition states.

    The Bar is asking that the court suspend or disbar Lamb.
