Two Virginia family law attorneys were publicly reprimanded this week after they allegedly failed to intervene following a court order to stop a client from conducting illegal surveillance of her husband’s conversations during their pending divorce case.

Gerald R. Curran and Demian J. McGarry, both of the Curran Moher Weis law firm, violated Rule 1.2—the scope of representation—and Rule 1.3—diligence—of the Virginia State Bar Professional Guidelines by allegedly receiving emails from their client, Andrea Marsh, containing potentially illicit recordings of her husband’s private and attorney-privileged conversations, according to the agreed-upon disposition order by the Virginia State Bar.
