Attorney Dorothy Dakin of Boone, IA; ethical goblin


The state of Iowa provided Dorothy Lynn Chuhel Dakin with a law license in 1984 after she graduated from Drake University School of Law.


The Disciplinary Counsel of the Iowa Supreme Court found Dorothy guilty of the following misconduct.

  • Failed to advise court that client was not biological father of one of the two children involved in a divorce matter
  • Engaged in conduct prejudicial to the administration of justice
  • Engaged in conduct involving fraud, deceit, dishonesty or misrepresentation

As a direct consequence of her misconduct, the cheerleaders for Attorney Misfits sitting on the Iowa Supreme Court punished Dorothy by gifting her with a complimentary reprimand.


As we speak (ca. January 2019), Dorothy practices with Kruse & Dakin LLP at 712 Arden in Boone, Iowa.
