Hubbard attorney accused of hiding $961,000 for Boardman chiropractor

Posted: Updated:
COLUMBUS, Ohio -

A Hubbard attorney is being investigated for allegedly helping a Boardman chiropractor hide hundreds of thousands of dollars from her husband during a divorce case.

The Ohio Supreme Court's Board of Commissioners and Discipline is investigating a complaint filed against Attorney David Keith Roland.

According to the complaint filed by the Trumbull County Bar Association Certified Grievance Committee, Roland had been representing Dr. Denise Carradine in her divorce proceedings filed in 2009.

The complaint alleges that between 2006 and 2009, Dr. Carradine gave Roland a total of $961,426.

The bar association alleges that Carradine would turn over amounts typically less than $10,000 to Roland, who would disperse the money at Dr. Carradine's direction.

Attorney Roland claims to have no knowledge of what happened to the money after he turned it over to an investment firm. Dr. Carradine says most of the money was lost through bad investments.

The complaint alleges that Roland used his Interest on Lawyers Trust Account (IOLTA) to hide money  from her husband, Eric Martin.

IOLTA allows a lawyer to place funds that belong to a client into a trust account separate from the lawyer's own money.

Attorney Roland has been added as a third party the divorce case, which is still in the court system.

The 11th District Court of Appeals rejected an attempt by Roland to be dismissed from the case, ruling that because he deposited large sums of money from Dr. Carradine into his IOLTA account, there was probable cause to believe that Roland was helping Dr. Carradine facilitate a fraud.

The Trumbull County Bar Association says that Roland's actions violate the Ohio Rules of Professional Conduct, and is requesting that he be disciplined.
