March 5, 2014 South Carolina Supreme Court published opinion

In the Matter of Phillip Earle Williams

Williams in four cases improperly disbursed estate assets while serving as personal representative of the four estates. Many of these disbursements were to himself. He also failed to maintain bank records or obey orders to properly disburse monies. After he was interimly suspended, he continued to practice law for two weeks and refused to cooperate with the attorney designated by the Court to handle his practice. Williams agreed to be disbarred and the Court disbarred him. It also ordered Williams to reimburse the client protection fund and ordered that he not seek reinstatement until a forensic accounting of his accounts has been performed and all persons injured by Williams’ actions are reimbursed.
