Attorney N. Shannon Bartels of Lima, OH; ethical dwarf
The state of Ohio presented N. Shannon Bartels with a law license in 1994 after she graduated from Case Western University Law School.
The Allen County Bar Association (Lima, Ohio) found Bartels guilty of the following misconduct.
After Bartels was hired in a post-divorce custody and visitation matter, he met with his client and the client’s wife and attended court conferences on their behalf. Subsequently, there was a settlement in the case.
The same day the case was settled and the agreement was signed by the judge, Bartels engaged in sexual activity with her client even though she was also representing the client’s wife.
As a consequence of his misconduct, the apologists for Attorney Misfits sitting on the Ohio Supreme Court punished Bartels by gifting him with a complimentary reprimand. Several months after the elicit affair began, the wife confronted Bartel’s about it, causing her to admit she was screwing the wife’s husband. This caused the wife to file an ethics complaint against Bartels.
This kind of gives a new meaning to “screwing a client” if ya know what I mean.
As we speak (ca. May 2012) Bartels practices law with the Bartels Law Office at 319 North Elizabeth Street in Lima, Ohio, which is about 70 miles south of Toledo.
If you are a woman living in the greater Lima, Ohio area and you’re in need of a lawyer in a custody case, I’d suggest you stay away from Bartel’s unless you’re looking to dump your husband.
