Nebraska Supreme Court disbars former Deuel County Attorney

Posted: Updated:

The Nebraska Supreme Court has disbarred a former western Nebraska county prosecutor who, as a private attorney, mishandled clients' money.
The state's high court said Friday that former Deuel County Attorney Doug Palik voluntarily surrendered his license to practice law in Nebraska.
In 2012, Palik had his law license suspended for one year for mishandling the administration of a woman's estate and lying for months to cover his mishandling of the case.
On Friday, the state's high court said Palik surrendered his license last year after a new grievance was filed against him. He admitted that he had co-mingled clients' money with that in his personal accounts and that in three instances over an 11-year period, he had mismanaged clients' funds in three different states.
