Turning Tricks


Michel Gassaway, an Oklahoma attorney, was disbarred for several reasons.  Not only did he forge the signature of a fellow attorney on a letter reportedly in his support when he found himself under investigation by the Oklahoma Bar Association, but also for trading legal services for sexual favors. It was the first case of its kind for the Oklahoma Supreme Court who was stunned by Gassaway’s apparent lack of remorse.  Gassaway contended that he was set up by his former client who allegedly had a “vendetta against him”.
