Madison lawyer loses license over misuse of client funds

A Madison-area attorney has agreed to give up his law license after failing to keep records of his client trust account and possibly using client money over a period of several years.

The Wisconsin Supreme Court revoked Adam Walsh’s license on Thursday. Walsh most recently ran Affordable Legal Services in Madison.

The Office of Lawyer Regulation noted that Walsh couldn’t provide complete records of the trust account but several thousand dollars appeared to be missing in at least two instances.

Walsh admitted he’d deposited his own money into the account at times, apparently to make up for missing funds. According to the opinion, none of Walsh’s clients have asserted he still owes them money.

Walsh didn’t contest the accusations. He began practicing law in 2008.
