Maryland Attorney Pleads Guilty to Stealing Thousands from Client

Charles J. Broida, an attorney from Columbia, Maryland, pleaded guilty to stealing over $28,000 from a client. Broida received a six month suspended jail sentence and was ordered to complete 300 hours of community service. The state's attorney charged Broida with one count of theft. Broida, in connection with his representation of an estate, stole investment dividends instead of distributing the dividends to the widow of the decedent. The widow thought that the dividend checks were going into an account that would be reassigned to her, but found out later that she had no access to the account or funds. Shortly after her discovery, she filed a complaint with the Maryland Attorney Grievance Commission.
