Central Florida Lawyer/Ex-State Lawmaker Gets Bar Boot For Allegedly Misappropriating Over $160K In Clients' Cash From His Trust Account

In Central Florida, the Tampa Bay Times reports:
  • The Florida Bar revoked former state Rep. Larry Crow's license in light of allegations that he misappropriated client funds and mishandled an estate case, according to court records.

    A petition filed in the Florida Bar case provides details of the disciplinary charges against Crow, who was elected to the Florida House in 1994 as a Republican from Palm Harbor and served four terms. In one case, an audit showed that Crow misappropriated at least $161,396 of client funds from his trust account.(1) In a separate case, Crow "failed to act with diligence in settling an estate which has been pending for over two years," the records state.

    Crow filed a petition for "disciplinary revocation" of his license, which means he decided not to contest the charges. The Florida Supreme Court granted his petition April 13.

    Crow had a Tarpon Springs firm at 1247 S Pinellas Ave. He practiced several kinds of law, including criminal, personal injury and real estate, according to his Florida Bar profile.
