Florida Bar Suspects Lawyer in $3M Firm Theft

The Florida Bar is seeking emergency suspension of the law license of a South Florida attorney suspected of stealing more than $3 million from his firm’s accounts.

Bar officials asked the Supreme Court on Tuesday to suspend the license of Timothy McCabe of Boca Raton. Court documents show that McCabe allegedly took the money from his firm’s trust accounts where clients’ funds are deposited.

The documents include emails McCabe sent to his partner saying that he had committed unspecified wrongdoing and was trying to set it right. His wife told investigators she hadn’t seen McCabe since April 2 and that he has not answered his cell phone. An email to her that same day said he had made bad business decisions.

A missing persons report was filed with police.
