Attorney Ruth Allen of Raleigh, NC; ethical goblin


The state of North Carolina provided Ruth M. Allen with a law license in 2006 after she graduated from the University of North Carolina Law School.


The Committee on Professional Conduct found Ruth guilty of the following misconduct, all of which took place while she was working for “Upright Law,” a law firm based in Chicago.

  • Failed to supervise  out-of-state nonlawyer assistants in the provision of legal services and in handling their clients’ entrusted funds
  • Failed to supervise office staff in handling of client’s trust funds
  • Rarely communicated with nonlawyers about their responsibilities in dealing with clients
  • Failed to take reasonable efforts to ensure that nonlawyer assistants were acting in accordance with the professional obligations of the profession
  • Failed to ensure that client ledgers were being kept for your clients
  • Failed to assure that clients' entrusted funds was reconciled monthly or quarterly

As a direct consequence of her misconduct the cheerleaders for Attorney Misfits sitting on the Committee on Professional Conduct punished Ruth by gifting her with a complimentary censure.


As we speak (ca. April 2019) Ruth practices at 7413 Six Forks Road in Raleigh, North Carolina.
