Thanks to Attorney Registration and Disciplinary Commission

To the editor:

Citizens for Justice, Inc. wishes to thank the Attorney Registration and Disciplinary Commission based in Springfield, Ill., for recommending that Logan County attorney Nick Burgrabe's law license be suspended for three years regarding his admission to gross misconduct.

Nick Burgrabe admitted to the panel that he drove under the influence of alcohol in 2001 and 2006, and that he videotaped himself having sex with at least five women -- including three former clients and a then-secretary in his office -- without their knowledge or consent between 1991 and 1997.

Nick Burgrabe has demonstrated, in my opinion, little or no respect for women, for all other citizens of Logan County, the courts, the local legal profession, his family, or himself. The jury of time, in my opinion, can and will determine if Nick Burgrabe can or should be trusted as an officer of the courts, or with our legal problems ever again in Lincoln and/or Logan County.

[to top of second column in this letter]

The results outlined in this case above demonstrate that it pays to complain to the proper agency when or if you encounter misconduct from an attorney. Contact Citizens for Justice, Inc. (phone 217-732-3438) if you believe that you have been wronged by a judge or an attorney, because action can be taken.

Citizens for Justice, Inc.
Lester C. Van Bibber III
