ABA Journal, Ex BigLaw Partner Who Lied on Child’s School Financial Aid Applications Is Disbarred:
An Illinois lawyer has been disbarred by the state supreme court for
misrepresenting his income on his child's private school financial aid
applications, in order to qualify for $22,830 in assistance over an
approximately four-year period.
In addition to providing falsified copies of his tax returns to the
Francis W. Parker School in Chicago, Bruce Paul Golden also
"understandably offended" most members of the hearing panel, it noted in
an earlier report, by refusing to provide requested information and
“antagonistic, sometimes rude" conduct, recounts Forest Leaves, a suburban news publication. Golden worked for more than 20 years at McDermott Will & Emery.
