Quote of the Day - You can't fire me, I quit.
There's some truth behind every joke, according to some, and perhaps this one presents a grain or two. Seems as though a lawyer, Bobby Glenn Adkins, Jr. billed clients for defending their complaints against him to the bar (subscription required).
In this case, $40.00.
Yep. Disbarred. By the Georgia Supreme Court. Most likely because this was the third time.
To add insult to injury, he defended himself in the disbarment proceedings.
Not that he didn't get a chance to avoid disbarment. Bar authorities proposed a plea bargain that required Adkins to admit to illegal conduct and accept a reprimand by the Georgia Bar's ethics review panel.
Adkins refused, he said, because he doesn't think he did anything wrong: "I wouldn't capitulate to their Draconian demands."
Instead, he got disbarred. Nothing Draconian about that.
Adkins has asked for additional time to reconsider.
