Attorney Nora Daniels of Newton, MA; lying Dufus


The Massachusetts Supreme Court presented Nora M. Daniels with a law license in 1987.


The Board of Bar Overseers found Richard guilty of the following misconduct.

  1. Negligently misused client funds
  2. Make a knowingly false statement to obtain a lien waiver
  3. Neglected a legal matter entrusted to her
  4. Used a patently false and misleading law firm name
  5. Failed to cooperate in Bar Counsel’s investigation (Up Yours, said Nora!)
  6. Failed to deposit client funds into interest bearing account as required for nearly 3 years

In one matter, Norma represented Mary O’Brien concerning an assault allegedly committed by an employee of BostonCollege. Subsequently, Nora allowed the statute of limitations on Mary’s claims to lapse. Norma failed to tell Mary that she had decided to not pursue the matter on her behalf. When Mary inquired about the status of her case, Normal failed to respond. It took three demands from Mary and/or her new attorney before Norma would return her file to her.


Bar Counsel rejected Norma’s testimony that she told Mary that she would not pursue the matter. The Bar Counsel further concluded that a letter that Norma put into evidence, addressed to Mary that declined representation, was fabricated by Norma.


Subsequently, Mary sued Norma for legal malpractice, and the matter eventually was settled.


In another matter, Norma used the name “Daniels & Smoczek” or “Law Offices of Daniels & Smoczek” on her letterhead, in court filings and in the Massachusetts Lawyers Diary and Manual. Norma did not have any partners or associates, and “Smoczek” was her birth name.


As a consequence of his misconduct, the apologists for Attorney Misfits sitting on the Disciplinary Commission punished Richard by gifting her with a complimentary 6-month suspension of her law license.


As we speak (ca. February 2013) Norma practices at45 Cherry Place in Newton, Massachusetts.
