Lawyer who had affair with divorce client and billed her for sex loses license indefinitely
A longtime Minnesota lawyer who admittedly had an affair with a matrimonial client and billed her for meeting time spent having sex has lost his law license for an indefinite period.
The state supreme court said in a brief order (PDF) dated Jan. 10 and made public Wednesday that Lowe had admitted to the allegations of the disciplinary petition.
The woman was considered a “vulnerable client” because of a history of prior abuse and mental health treatment. She reportedly attempted suicide after Lowe ended the affair.
