Law Professor Gerry Beyer’s Wills Trusts and Estates Prof Law blog reports the sad and cautionary tale of a (now former) member of the Texas Bar who evidently thought he could get away with just about anything. Not only did this disgrace to my profession thumb his nose at the regulations requiring the filing of accountings, he even forged legal documents so he could fraudulently engineer the release of estate funds from the banks holding them. There really are rules (strict ones) protecting the public from conduct such as this. This story is a prime example.
