City lawyer may lose licence

Stole $262K from family trusts


Kirshenbaum said money from the trusts went into Hayes’ law firm and client accounts, as well as toward general expenses.

Under the prior suspension order, Hayes was required to withdraw from all legal cases, notify any clients and refund part of any fees paid in advance that have not been earned. He also was ordered to close any bank accounts related to client business and return any client funds in his control.

Hayes also agreed to pay $100,000 to settle a civil lawsuit brought by three of Clark’s four surviving children — Eben Clark, Margaret Towle and Betsy Clark.
