The Florida Bar v. Henry T. Swann, III
The Florida Bar accuses Mr. Swann of several instances of misconduct, including acting improperly as the personal representative of his father's estate; helping his girlfriend financially exploit an elderly client; concealing marital assets during his divorce and engaging in business transactions with clients. The trial judge considering the case as a referee concluded Mr. Swann was guilty of several violations of the ethical code for attorneys and recommended this Court suspend him for 91 days. Mr. Swann supports that recommendation; the Bar argues Mr. Swann should be disbarred permanently.
