Howard Lettman struck off the roll of practising attorneys locally

Yet another attorney has been barred from practising law in Jamaica by the General Legal Council (GLC).  He is Howard Lettman, who has been struck off the roll of attorneys entitled to practise in the country.

The council has cited several professional breaches on the part of Lettman.

In a newspaper advertisement on Friday, the GLC advised that Lettman was found in breach of the legal profession on July 28, and it was the second order for striking off, as an order was made on December 12, 2017.

The Disciplinary Committee of the GLC made the striking off order after hearing evidence in a complaint brought by a man who had power of attorney to act on behalf of his sister.

The committee found that Lettman represented the woman in the sale of property in the amount of $6.5 million. However, she is yet to receive the proceeds from the sale, which amounted to $5,873,750.

Having been found guilty of breaching several canons of the legal profession, Lettman is now not entitled to practise in Jamaica or to be employed in that capacity by any member of the public.
