Attorney’s former clients reimbursed
Two former clients of former Warren attorney Joseph D. Ohlin were reimbursed $8,527 as a result of Ohlin’s failure to account for settlement proceeds.
Ohlin resigned from the practice of law in Ohio, with discipline pending, March 14.
The reimbursement was ordered by the Board of Commissioners of the Clients Security Fund of Ohio, which was created in 1985 to reimburse victims of attorney theft, embezzlement or misappropriation.
The Ohio Supreme Court imposed an indefinite suspension against Ohlin’s law license in 2010 for causing damage to three clients by neglecting legal matters they entrusted to him and for failing to comply with other provisions of the rules of professional conduct.
