Former state representative agrees to nine-month suspension of law license

Continue reading below

Former state representative Daniel Webster has agreed to give up his law license for nine months  for mishandling a client’s estate account in 2009 and 2010. The Office of Bar Counsel, an independent state agency that investigates complaints against lawyers, signed the preliminary settlement on the disciplinary action with Webster Jan. 10.  In it, Webster admitted he intentionally withdrew money from a client’s estate account and failed to keep proper trust account records. Michael Fredrickson, general counsel for the Board of Bar Overseers, said the settlement must still be approved by the board as well as a justice from the Supreme Court. He said he expected the Board of Bar Overseers to take it up at its Feb. 11 meeting. Webster had been state representative for the 6th Plymouth District from 2003 until earlier this month, when his final term ended. The Hanson Republican initially planned to run for another term and won his party’s nomination last fall, but withdrew before the November election. Webster has a private law practice with an office in Pembroke. He did not return calls for comment.
