Attorney Gerald Cowden of Cleveland; ethical elf

 
The state of Ohio presented Gerald Wayne Cowden with a law license in 1975 after he graduated from the University of Akron Law School.
 
Disciplinary Counsel of the Ohio Supreme Court found Gerald guilty of the following misconduct.
  1. Engaged in a pattern of misconduct
  2. Misconduct involved multiple offenses
  3. Engaged in a conflict of interest
  4. Used attorney confidence
On matter, Gerald negotiated financing for a client and his company with a venture capital firm in which Gerald was a partner. Gerald also represented the other partners in the venture capital firm. Gerald failed to disclose the obvious conflict, or advise the client to obtain other counsel before signing the financial agreement.
 
Subsequently, Gerald drafted a financing agreement for the client’s company and then sought to enforce the agreement on behalf of another client who was Gerald’s business associate.
 
As a consequence of his misconduct, the cheerleaders for Attorney Misfits sitting on the Ohio Supreme Court punished Gerald by gifting him with a complimentary stayed 1-year suspension of his law license. In truth, the comedians sitting on the Ohio Supreme Court didn’t mete out any meaningful punishment to Edward.
 
As we speak (ca. November 2012) Gerald practices with Cowden & Humphrey Co. LPA at 4600 Euclid Avenue in Cleveland, Ohio.
