Attorney Geoffrey Albrecht of Columbus, OH; cheating Dufus

The state of Ohio presented Geoffrey Edward Albrecht with a law license in 1975 after he graduated from Capitol University Law School.
The Columbus Bar Association found John guilty of misconduct involving several clients (victims) as set forth below.
  1. Failed to respond to client’s repeated inquiries
  2. Refused to return unearned fee (crook)
  3. Intentionally failed to carry out contract of employment as required
  4. Engaged in conduct adversely reflecting on his fitness to practice law
  5. Accepted case he was not competent to handle (moron)
  6. Neglected a legal matter entrusted to him
  7. Engaged in conduct that intentionally damaged or prejudiced a client
  8. Failed to inform client that he didn’t carry legal malpractice insurance
  9. Engaged in a pattern of misconduct
  10. Misconduct involved multiple offenses and victims
Victim No. 1
Geoffrey represented Dave Fox Remodeling and accepted a $450 retainer fee. When Geoffrey failed to complete the work and respond to repeated inquiries he was fired; however, he refused to return the $450 fee he never earned. It wasn’t until almost two-years later that Geoffrey refunded the $450 and that happened after the victim filed an ethics complaint against him.
Victim No. 2
Geoffrey was named executor of an estate and trustee for a trust established by Stephen Haban for t he benefit of several family members. Geoffrey repeatedly failed to provide annual accountings of the trust. He also failed to timely file annual tax returns for the trust, which caused the trust to pay more than $16,000 in penalties and interest to the IRS.
Victim No. 3
Geoffrey represented Terry Holtrey in divorce proceedings. Holtrey paid Geoffrey over $6,000 in fees. Over a period of at least two years, Geoffrey failed to file documents necessary to secure child support for Terry, and said failure resulted in the loss of 12 months of child-support payments that Terry would have been entitled too.
As a consequence of his misconduct, the enablers for Judicial Misfits sitting on the Ohio Supreme Court punished Geoffrey by gifting him with a complimentary stayed180-day suspension of his law license. In truth, the comedians sitting on the Supreme Court didn’t mete out any real punishment to Geoffrey.
As we speak (ca. October 2012) Geoffrey practices with Geoffrey E. Albrecht LPA at 673 Mohawk Street in Columbus, Ohio.
