Legal Secretary Worked for Escort Service

A legal secretary has been suspended after admitting to her bosses that she worked nights at an escort service.

Her day job was at Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld in Washington, D.C.

Alleged D.C. madam Jeane Palfrey told ABC News the secretary worked as an escort and sometimes answered the phones for her.

The woman even offered to resurrect the closed escort service from Akin Gump offices, the report says.

The firm would not disclose the woman’s name. “We had no inkling until she informed us this Monday morning,” R. Bruce McLean, the chairman of Akin Gump, told ABC.
