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.
