Talk about a train wreck.
Here are the latest numbers on the devastation caused by Stephen Conrad, the Prince William County lawyer who systematically settled without authorization and pocketed the proceeds from the personal injury cases of his clients:
– $4 million stolen
– $455,366 in legal fees and expenses for the receivership that is winding up Conrad’s practice
– 315 clients victimized
– 120 petitions to the Clients’ Protection Fund
– $101,000 in assets recovered by the receiver
Conrad has been disbarred and pleaded guilty in federal court in August to wire fraud. He is expected to be sentenced on Nov. 14 to 121 to 151 months in prison.
