Attorney Donald MacLachlan of Saddle River has been disbarred for taking $91,749 from a client’s trust account for his own use, according to an order made public Thursday.
When MacLachlan took the funds, he knew they belonged to the client and that the client had not authorized him to use them, the court’s Disciplinary Review Board said. MacLachlan was disbarred after failing to appear before disciplinary authorities to answer the charges.
