A former office manager of a D.C. law firm pleaded guilty to bank fraud last week. Patricia Campblin, who worked at Krooth & Altman, was accused of stealing more than $30,000 from the 24-lawyer real estate firm over the course of a year. In court, Campblin admitted to cashing checks made out to firm partners purportedly as reimbursement for travel expenses. Campblin forged the partners’ signatures and deposited cash into her bank account. Her lawyer, Patricia Cresta-Savage, did not return calls. E. Joseph Knoll, managing partner at Krooth & Altman, also did not return calls. Campblin’s sentencing before U.S. District Judge Reggie Walton is set for Nov. 17. Under federal guidelines, she could receive 10 to 16 months in prison.
