Mahoning County Bar Association files complaint against Yavorcik


COLUMBUS — The Mahoning County Bar Association filed a complaint against Martin Yavorcik, convicted in 2016 for his involvement in the Oakhill Renaissance Place corruption scandal, contending the suspended lawyer failed to give more than $10,000 in settlement money to a client.

The complaint, filed with the Board of Professional Conduct of the Ohio Supreme Court, states that Yavorcik owes $10,931.28 to a client who is the parent and guardian of a minor injured in an Aug. 12, 2013, motor vehicle accident in Mahoning County. The case was resolved two years later, but the client never received the settlement money from Yavorcik, who was his attorney, according to the complaint.

This complaint is in addition to one filed by the county bar association against Yavorcik related to his March 25, 2016, conviction on eight felonies in the Oakhill scandal.
