According to the ARDC website: not authorized to practice law due to discipline - Last Registered Year: 2011

Look at this link:
http://www.iardc.org/ldetail.asp...

He has asked the ARDC to enter into a "disbarment upon consent".

Specifically, since January 13, 2012:
"Disbarment on consent is imposed by the Supreme Court based upon the lawyer's filing of a motion to strike his or her name from the roll of attorneys in face of disciplinary charges that are set forth in the Administrator's Statement of Charges. The disbarred lawyer is not authorized to practice law during the period of the disbarment on consent and may not return to the practice of law unless and until the lawyer has demonstrated his or her rehabilitation, good character, and current knowledge of the law in a subsequent reinstatement case, which may not be filed until three years after the effective date of the disbarment on consent."

I believe that this is the same fate as Blago.
The perp gave up his license, but can reapply after the passage of time (3 years) and the ARDC would then rule on if he was a suitable for reinstatement to the bar.

The onus is on Mr. McCombs to reapply (offer) and for the ARDC to accept (reinstate).

The information flowing back to us is all very positive. He is adjusting very well to his new life and fast friends. Bubba is enjoying his new friend, and the honey moon continues. Is there any remote possibility that his wife might sue for adultery? He has become a model to the other residents. And in the near future he could provide legal knowledge to all that need it there.

Another corrupt lawyer! When will we stop trusting these mooks? When I went to college, intelligent students majored in pre-med, engineering, and science. Dumbest of the dumb went on to law school.

Greenberg Traurig: Apology not indicative of track record
South Florida Business Journal by Paul Brinkmann, Reporter

It was a rare event in the legal world when Cesar Alvarez, chairman of Greenberg Traurig, stood up in a federal courtroom on May 18 and apologized for “mistakes” that were made in a high-profile lawsuit.
It followed a loss in a case where the firm was defending TD Bank against allegations by Texas-based Coquina Investments that it aided Scott Rothstein’s Ponzi scheme.
It was not the first important trial where a big corporate client of Greenberg Traurig’s Miami office lost a ruling or a verdict. In the past three years, clients BDO Seidman and Ernst & Young both lost ...

It has been reported at Bishop and Flournoy Streets that Mark is hunky dory. And Bubba is getting along just fine. Thank You Bubba

Mark is what is wrong with Calumet Township, and the city of Blue Island government. Mark could not have pulled off this theft by himself. His accomplices, must be brought to justice too. There are several names out there circulating, who need to be questioned by the authorities.

Guy should be in prison
He did not work alone, there are many collaborative efforts in multiple communities and states. Persons involved include elected officials including the Democratic Party.

The tough questions are:

"Where does this trail lead?"
"Where will the trail end?"
"Whose desk will ALL of the information land on?"
"When Will Formal Charges be Filed?"

Mark McCombs had accomplices, who need to be brought to justice. Sing Mark, Sing

After conviction, attorney Joseph Cari trying for comeback, but no more politics

WASHINGTON — There was a time when Joseph Cari — once a Chicago lawyer, major Democratic fund-raiser, pal of Bill Clinton and Joe Biden, Al Gore’s top presidential campaign money man — was a very big deal in this city. But it all fell apart about eight years ago, when federal prosecutors targeted him in a probe that also netted Rod Blagojevich and Tony Rezko.

Cari’s legal nightmare ended, with no fanfare, on April 24.

That’s when U.S. District Judge Amy St. Eve in Chicago signed an order terminating Cari’s probation after he served 18 months of the 36-month sentence she imposed Aug. 9, 2011.

Cari already had completed nine months of home confinement and 250 hours of community service, which included helping a Haitian grammar school in the wake of the horrific earthquake.

In his first interview since 2005, Cari says:“I am now going on in a new chapter of my life, and that will be a combination of public policy and business and volunteer work, and with great enthusiasm and with great joy. It’s officially done. The chapter is over.”

At his peak, Cari was appointed by President Clinton to the board of Washington’s Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars, taking over as chairman in 1999.

At his low point, he pleaded guilty on Sept. 15, 2005, to attempted extortion, admitting he made phone calls shaking down a Virginia investment firm seeking Illinois’ teacher-pension fund business. A Rezko associate was supposed to get a finder’s fee and use some of that cash for political contributions.

As part of his plea deal, Cari cooperated with federal prosecutors. Cari endured six years of not knowing whether he would end up in prison. He testified at Rezko’s trial and at the first trial for the former Illinois governor.

Now, Cari, 60, is speaking to me from his home in Castellini in Chianti. He lives in Italy and New York, having moved from Chicago in 2006. Cari sold his Lincoln Park home in 2007, and he says the money from the house helped pay his bills.

He left Chicago because “I didn’t want to run into people. I knew I was going to testify, and I thought it would just be better for me not to be there.”

Starting a new life was “painful,” Cari said.“There was a very long time when I just would not get out of bed. But I slowly started one step, one foot in front of the other, and started building up consulting work.”

During the very worst of the darkest days,“for a guy who considered himself so smart, I felt completely helpless to figure out where to go, where to even find hope.

“These are the kinds of things I would have missed if I had not gotten through what Churchill, I guess, called the ‘Black Dog,’ as they call major depression.”

Some friends stuck with Cari throughout the darkest period of his life; others did not.

Cari is building a new life that has elements of his old one but with one exception: no more politics.

He is the chairman and chief executive officer of Integration Capital & Trade Global, an international merchant bank, and travels to London, Mumbai and the Middle East.

Continuing his interest in foreign policy, Cari joined a New York think tank, the World Policy Institute, and on June 4 was named chairman of its advisory board.

He also started working at Loyola Marymount University’s Institute for Leadership Studies in Los Angeles, where his daughter lives. He gives lectures on presidential politics and foreign policy at the Catholic school and is chairman of the institute’s advisory board.

On occasion, Cari tells students about how life as he knew it “was over” because of a few phone calls he made in May 2004.

The lesson he teaches, Cari says, is “no matter where you are in life, no matter how self-assured you are, you have to think through what you are doing. And I did not.”
