Disciplinary Counsel v. Carol B. Adelstein, Case No. 2019-0801
Cleveland attorney Carol B. Adelstein is facing discipline for violating multiple rules governing attorney conduct related to maintaining and reconciling her client trust accounts (IOLTAs).
Adelstein and the Office of Disciplinary Counsel, which investigated the matter, agreed to a fully stayed one-year suspension with conditions. The Board of Professional Conduct determined, however, that the lawyer's misconduct warrants only a six-month stay of the one-year suspension, and recommends that sanction to the Ohio Supreme Court.
