The ethics board for Massachusetts lawyers has recommend that Worcester-based personal injury lawyer Abigail R. Williams—accused by the board of overcharging clients, stealing portions of their settlement money and lying about it afterward—be disbarred.

The Board of Bar Overseers of the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court noted in its opinion that Williams’ firm previously had trouble with another one of its lawyers, Ross Annenberg, who was disbarred in 2015 for misuse of client funds after he entered a guilty plea to related criminal charges, according to board member Frank Hill III’s opinion.
