Attorney Murdoch Hertzog of Michigan; Pervert, liar, repeater

Attorney Murdoch Hertzog practices law at 22811 Greater Mack Avenue in Saint Clair Shores, Michigan, which is a suburb of Detroit.
In the past, Hertzog pleaded guilty to a charge of assault and battery. In exchange for his guilty plea, the prosecutor dismissed a charge of fourth-degree criminal sexual conduct.
Several years later, the Michigan Attorney Grievance Commission filed an ethics complaint against Hertzog, which contained the following charges:
Hertzog the Perv’s “Couch of Restitution”
Hertzog the Perv would offer female clients the opportunity to reduce and/or wave his attorney fees if they assumed the position on the “Couch of Restitution.” He engaged in this perversion in the following instances:
  • Patted Cheryl B on the buttocks and told her not to worry about his legal fees because the balance could be paid on his “couch of restitution”
  • Told Tina P, a client in a domestic matter she could pay his fees on his “couch of restitution”
  • When Cammie P went to shake the Perv’s hand at the conclusion of their meeting, he squeezed her breast and touched her groin area in a tickling fashion. He then pointed out his “couch of restitution”
  • When Sandra B met with the Perv regarding a divorce matter, she expressed concern about paying him. The Perv responded by requesting oral sex as payment
This wasn’t the Perv’s first bite at the Attorney Misfit Apple Tree as is discussed below.
1st bite at the Attorney Misfit Apple Tree
In 1988 the Perv received a thirty day suspension based on findings that he:
  1. Lied to a client
  2. Engaged in a conflict of interest
  3. Failed to release client files
2nd bite at the Attorney Misfit Apple Tree
In 1994 the Perv received an admonishment based on a finding that he improperly suggested an exchange of sexual acts for legal services while representing a female client in a divorce case.
The Perv’s Hyperbolic (BS) Defense
In his defense to the charges involving his so-called “couch of restitution,” the Perv claimed as mitigation, his claim that he performed “pro bono” work. Isn’t that touching?
For his 3rd bite at the Attorney Misfit Apple Tree the enablers at the State Bar punished the Perv by gifting him with a 180 day suspension.
This proves beyond all doubt that Attorney Misfits in Michigan are held to a much lower standard of conduct that we are. This certified loser should have had his law license permanently revoked.
