The Virginia State Bar Disciplinary Board has revoked the law license of Christiansburg attorney Gerard R. Marks.
Marks, who faces trial on 21 felony counts related to his law practice, consented to the revocation, according to a VSB news release. The release says Marks admitted accepting client money without performing the work, issuing a purported settlement check to a client when no settlement had occurred, and forging the signatures of judges and other officials on legal documents.
Retired Circuit Judge Ford C. Quillen has been appointed to hear the criminal case against Marks. A jury trial is scheduled for September 25, according to the Montgomery County Circuit Clerk’s office.
