A Manhattan divorce and family law attorney has been suspended from practicing law after repeatedly sexting a female client he was representing in a child support matter, exchanging explicit photos with her, and eventually having a sexual encounter with her in a stairwell of a Lower Manhattan courthouse.

He “took my money, sex chat me, collected tone (sic) of pictures of my body parts, he had oral sex and he did [a] bad job on my case,” the client is quoted as having written to an attorney grievance committee about lawyer David G. Scudieri, according to an Appellate Division, First Department decision issued on Tuesday that suspends the lawyer for 18 months.
