Attorney Leonard Williams of Wilmington, DE; serial offender

 
The state of Delaware presented Leonard L. Williams with a law license in 1975.
 
The Delaware Supreme court found Leonard guilty of misconduct on at least three separate occasions as set forth below.
 
Leonard’s 1st bite at the Attorney Misfit Apple Tree

 
Leonard failed to maintain his books and records relating to his fiduciary and non-fiduciary accounts in compliance with Supreme Court Guidelines.
 
Leonard found it acceptable to file a false certificate of compliance with the Supreme Court that his books and records were in complains with the rules.
 
As a consequence of his misconduct, apologists for Attorney Misfits sitting on the Delaware Supreme Court punished Leonard by gifting him with a complimentary reprimand.
 
Leonard’s 2nd bite at the Attorney Misfit Apple Tree

  1. Engaged in conduct prejudicial to the administration of justice
  2. Engaged in conduct involving fraud, deceit, dishonesty or misrepresentation
  3. Failed to pay federal and state income taxes as well as payroll taxes
  4. Failed to maintain law office books and records as required
  5. Engaged in deceptive conduct by filing sham certificates of compliance
  6. Engaged in conduct prejudicial to the administration of justice
  7. Failed to pay several parking tickets
After an audit of Leonard’s accounts was performed for the Lawyers’ Fund for Client Protection, it was discovered that he owned more than $158,000 in back taxes including penalties and interest.
 
As a consequence of his misconduct, Patron Saints for Attorney Misfits sitting on the Delaware Supreme Court punished Leonard by gifting him with yet another (2nd) complimentary reprimand.
 
Leonard’s 3rd bite at the Attorney Misfit Apple Tree

  2. Made a false statement of material fact
  3. Failed to safeguard client funds

  7. Engaged in a pattern of misconduct
  8. Misconduct involved multiple violations of the Disciplinary Rules
  9. Failed to properly manage his law office
In one matter, while responding to an inquiry from the Office of Disciplinary Counsel, Leonard knowingly made a false statement of fact when falsely claimed that he had not represented a client when in fact he had entered his appearance on behalf of that individual in the Court of Common Pleas.
 
As a consequence of his misconduct, Patron Saints for Attorney Misfits sitting on the Delaware Supreme Court punished Leonard by gifting him with yet another (3rd) complimentary reprimand.
 
As we speak (ca. February 2013) Leonard practices at 1214 King Street in Wilmington, Delaware.
