Oklahoma attorney facing suspension resigns for ministry

The Associated Press - March 13, 2017 12:08 pm

MUSKOGEE, Okla. (AP) – A McAlester attorney facing a two year suspension for an ethics violation has resigned and plans to become a minister.
The lawyer for 42-year-old Amy Elizabeth Harrison told The Oklahoman  that Harrison decided in February to resign rather than fight the allegations before the state Supreme Court.
A professional responsibility panel recommended in January that the court suspend Harrison for two years and a day after finding that she was the “quintessential ‘ambulance chaser.'”
Harrison was accused of having employees pose as charity workers to contact traffic accident victims and solicit their business and of obtaining state Department of Public Safety emails about traffic crashes to identify potential clients.
She said at a disciplinary hearing in November that she didn’t know she was violating ethics rules.
