The Virginia State Bar Clients’ Protection Fund Board recently authorized more than $175,000 to petitioners who were allegedly owed funds from nine licensed attorneys, the state bar announced June 30.

The board authorized the payments for 13 petitions at its April 28 meeting. The largest single award was a payment of $65,192 to the beneficiary of an estate in which Richard Gibson Wohltman was a co-executor. The board found that Wohltman committed dishonest conduct in theft, conversion, embezzlement or withholding money from the estate, and that the attorney did not perform the work for which he billed services, according to the bar’s media release.
