High Court Suspends Coddington's Law License

What is it with suspended, disbarred, and unethical attorneys doing paralegal work? In New Hampshire, the high court suspended Paul Coddington's law license after he mismanaged clients' money and failed to respond to court notices about those charges. He hasn't practiced law since 2004; he's been working as a paralegal.

Now, I understand that it may seem like a great deal to hire a disbarred attorney as a paralegal. Here's someone who knows the law. But doesn't anyone worry that maybe the disbarred attorney will engage in the unauthorized practice of law? Or ethical violations of other sorts?
