LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - An Omaha attorney accused of trust account violations and falsifying documents has been disbarred.

The Nebraska Supreme Court ordered the disbarment of Patricia Geringer on Friday after she voluntarily surrendered her law license in January.

The formal charges against Geringer consisted of three counts alleging that she violated her oath of office as an attorney.

The record says Geringer first filed a response to the charge in December in which she denied the allegations, and a referee was appointed on Dec. 15. A little more than three weeks later, Geringer filed to voluntarily surrender her license.

On Friday, the high court found that Geringer freely, knowingly and voluntarily admitted that she does not contest the allegations against her.
