State seeks further discipline against suspended lawyer Paul Page

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

The Indiana Supreme Court Disciplinary Commission has filed a complaint against suspended Indianapolis attorney and developer Paul Page that could result in further sanctions against his law license.

Paul Page pleaded guilty in January 2013 to a single federal felony wire fraud charge and was sentenced to two years probation and a $10,000 fine in November. His license to practice law was suspended afterward.

Page was charged in a 14-count indictment in which two co-defendants later were found not guilty in a jury trial in U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Indiana. The charges related to a real estate deal involving an Elkhart office building leased to the state. The verdict helped unravel a related public corruption investigation targeting former Marion County prosecutor Carl Brizzi.

The complaint filed this week by the disciplinary commission says Page’s conviction is a violation of Admission and Discipline Rule 8.4(b), committing a criminal act that reflects adversely on the lawyer’s honesty, trustworthiness or fitness, and Rule 8.4(c), engaging in conduct involving dishonesty, fraud, deceit or misrepresentation.

    What is to happen to the possibly hundreds of defendants that were represented by Paul Page when he himself was engaging in illegal activities? I was represented by Paul Page and I am looking to clear my record. He made me feel like what I had in front of me as a plea was my only option.

  1. Contact Lea Shelemey attorney in porter county Indiana. She just helped us win our case...she is awesome...

  2. We won!!!! It was a long expensive battle but we did it. I just wanted people to know it is possible. And if someone can point me I. The right direction to help change the way the courts look as grandparents as only grandparents. The courts assume the parent does what is in the best interest of the child...and the court is wrong. A lot of the time it is spite and vindictiveness that separates grandparents and grandchildren. It should not have been this long and hard and expensive...Something needs to change...

  3. Typo on # of Indiana counties

  4. The Supreme Court is very proud that they are Giving a billion dollar public company from Texas who owns Odyssey a statewide monopoly which consultants have said is not unnecessary but worse they have already cost Hoosiers well over $100 MILLION, costing tens of millions every year and Odyssey is still not connected statewide which is in violation of state law. The Supreme Court is using taxpayer money and Odyssey to compete against a Hoosier company who has the only system in Indiana that is connected statewide and still has 40 of the 82 counties despite the massive spending and unnecessary attacks
