The Kansas Supreme Court released the following published decision today:
Appeal No. 116,773: In the Matter of Uchchi Okechukwu Nwakanma
Uhchi Okechukwu Nwakanma of Houston, Texas, was disbarred from the practice of law in Kansas. Since he was admitted to practice law in Kansas in 2003, Nwakanma only ever practiced law in Houston, Texas. He was never licensed to practice in the state of Texas. The Kansas Supreme Court found that Nwakanma violated several of Texas' Disciplinary Rules of Professional Conduct. It also found numerous violations of the Kansas Rules of Professional Conduct, such as those relating to competence, diligence, communication, fees, safekeeping of property, termination of representation, fairness to opposing party and counsel, bar admission and disciplinary matters, misconduct, and cooperation. Many of these violations arose during Nwakanma's representation of a defendant charged in federal court with 55 felony counts of health care fraud, mail fraud, and money laundering.
