Attorney William Anthony III of Gastonia, NC; ethical dwarf


The state of North Carolina presented William A. Anthony III with a law license in 1996 after he graduated from the University of Kentucky Law School.


Th e Grievance Committee of the North Carolina State Bar found Billy guilty of the following misconduct.

  • Failed to perform quarterly reconciliations of firm’s trust account
  • Misconduct involved multiple offenses
  • Failed to maintain ledgers for each client
  • Failed to provide accounting to clients re: client funds
  • Failed to comply with required trust account recordkeeping procedures
  • Allowed entrusted funds to be disbursed in manner not authorized by or for the benefit of a client
  • Engaged in a pattern of misconduct
  • Victims of misconduct were vulnerable

As a direct consequence of his misconduct, the Patron Saints for Attorney Misfits sitting on the Grievance Committee punished Billy by gifting him with a complimentary stayed 2-year suspension of his law license.


In truth, the comedians sitting on the Grievance Committee didn’t mete out any meaningful punishment to Billy.


As we speak (ca. May 2017), (ca. May 2017) Billy practices with Bogle & Anthony PA at 223 West Main Avenue in Gastonia, North Carolina.
