Appeals court orders attorney to be disbarred

The Arkansas Supreme Court on Thursday ordered the disbarment of a Jonesboro attorney.

The court’s Committee on Professional Conduct began proceedings to disbar F. Scott STRAUB in May 2009 under a reciprocal agreement with Louisiana.

However, the justices stayed the proceedings after STRAUB said he had appealed the Louisiana decision. STRAUB told Arkansas officials that he had initially been unable to defend himself against the Louisiana allegations “due to life-threatening health problems and extreme financial hardship from medical expenses.”

The Supreme Court of Louisiana had found that STRAUB violated several rules of professional conduct in complaints from 12 separate clients.

The court said it appeared STRAUB collected more than $40,000 from clients but didn’t perform any meaningful legal work on their behalf.

STRAUB had been ineligible to practice law in Louisiana since Sept. 7, 2004, for failure to pay his bar dues and for failure to pay an assessment in a previous disciplinary action, according to the Louisiana order.

On Thursday the Arkansas Supreme Court acted on a motion from the Arkansas committee to lift the stay of the proceedings. The court received an affidavit from Charles B. Pattsmier, the chief disciplinary counsel for the Louisiana Attorney Disciplinary Board, stating that, as of Nov. 30, 2009, STRAUB had not filed anything to challenge his disbarment in Louisiana.

The Arkansas Office of Professional Conduct also confirmed via telephone that STRAUB has not filed anything with the Louisiana Supreme Court since Pattsmier submitted his affidavit.

In addition, justices said STRAUB failed to file a response to the Arkansas committee’s motion for disbarment.

“Based on the information before us, it appears that STRAUB’s disbarment in Louisiana is final, and no appeal from that order is being actively pursued,” the court said in its per curiam order.“We, therefore, grant the committee’s motion to lift the stay.”

The court noted that Arkansas’ procedures treat the suspension or disbarment of any attorney in any other state as if it had happened in this state.

He is living at his sister's house in Jonesboro. Everyone he screwed needs to bring criminal charges against him for taking their money. From what I have seen on facebook he cheated on his wife and she threw him out.

He is disbarred and living in Jonesboro on 223 Steele Avenue with his brother in law. If he owes you money from when he was an attorney contact the prosecutor's office not the police (his best friend is a police officer) if enough of you would report it to the prosecutor's office then they would have to do something and get your money back. He was ordered to pay clients in Louisiana and has not done so and won't until he is made to do so.
