Thomas Francis DiLustro received a public censure for accepting fees from a client without performing any legal work in the case and deceived his client into believing that a civil action had been filed when it had not. He constructively withdrew from the case without returning unearned fees to the client. In another case, DiLustro failed to turn over his client’s file upon request at the conclusion of the representation. In both instances, DiLustro failed to adequately communicate with his clients and failed to respond to requests for information from the Board of Professional Responsibility. Download the BPR notice.
