In this attorney disciplinary case, The Florida Bar accused Mr. Herman of violating the ethical standards for lawyers, including misconduct in his personal Chapter 7 bankruptcy case. The judge-referee recommends that this Court suspend Mr. Herman from the practice of law for 18 months. The Florida Bar is seeking disbarment. Mr. Herman argues that he did not act dishonestly because he relied on the advice of his bankruptcy attorney.
