CONNECTICUT: Divorce and family lawyer Ira Mayo gets life ban from female clients

The ABA Journal reports that a Connecticut lawyer named Ira Mayo was suspended from the practice of law and also received a lifetime ban from the State disciplinary committee from representing female clients in divorce and family law actions. Why? It seems he had this quid pro quo thingy going on whereby he would procure massages and sexual favors from family law and domestic violence clients in exchange for legal representation. The Committee felt that under the circumstances he was only qualified to represent males. So more than likely he will commence a “Father’s Rights” law firm in the State of Connecticut. He also received a small financial sanction – a few hundred bucks – ¬†which has to be paid.
