Indialantic Attorney Ordered To Pay $10K To Client By Florida Bar

INDIALANTIC, Fla. —  According to a Florida Bar press release, Jonathan Douglas Lack, of 909 South Miramar Avenue, Indialantic, was publicly reprimanded following a November 18, 2011, court order. 

Additionally, Lack was ordered to pay restitution of $10,752 to one client. Lack, who was admitted to the Florida Bar in 1990, entered into a business transaction with a client while representing him. 

In addition to the retainer, Lack also received a $211,000 loan from the client to purchase a condominium.  While the client held the mortgage, Lack initiated the note and mortgage and completed the transaction without the required written disclosures and consents from the client. 

Lack subsequently failed to pay the property taxes and related fees on the condo. He also failed to make payments on the note involving the borrowed funds. (Case No. SC11-46)
