OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - An Omaha attorney has been disbarred for mishandling a client’s money.

The Nebraska Supreme Court issued the disbarment Friday for Omaha attorney Doug Lederer. In its order, the state’s high court said that Lederer voluntarily surrendered his license in early October.

Lederer has been practicing law in Nebraska since 2005. He acknowledged that he deposited clients’ advance fees into his personal checking account before earning them.

Lederer declined to comment when reached by The Associated Press.
