Florida Debt Relief Attorney Sanctioned for Illegal Fee Sharing

According to Financial News & Daily Record out of Jacksonville the following Florida attorney was recently suspended for debt relief activities.

April Ann Arendell, 5342 Lake Margaret Drive, Apt. 523, Orlando, suspended for 45 days, effective immediately, following an Oct. 12 court order. (Admitted to practice: 2006) Further, upon reinstatement, Arendell will be placed on probation for three years and sign a rehabilitation contract with Florida Lawyers Assistance Inc. Arendell entered into an employment contract that created a conflict of interest and did not provide the customer with the proper attorney-client relationship. Arendell’s employment arrangement created a situation in which she assisted in the unlicensed practice of law and shared legal fees with nonlawyers. She also failed to complete and communicate loan modification case statuses with clients; and she failed to maintain minimum trust accounting records and comply with minimum trust accounting procedures. (Case Nos. SC10-1057 & SC10-1145) – Source

    They should do this to all the attorneys participating in the kickback practice with debt relief companies.

    I don’t think 45 days is enough of a punishment though. Anyone disagree?
