In all honesty, I must say that I became disturbed reading the three-against-one inquiry that resulted from what I view as a faulty and objectionable subpoena, during which a whole lot of extraneous and confidential client information was openly discussed, under what my client believed was a veil of confidentiality. Perhaps it is time to consider developing a Miranda-type warning for situations like this, in which a near-coercive environment results in the abuse of client rights in the name of a fishing expedition. It may be that attorneys merely have a privilege, but their clients have rights. Thank you.

18 IN THE SUPREME COURT OF FLORIDA (Before A Grievance Committee) THE FLORIDA BAR, Complainant, The Florida Bar File No ,643 (12C) v. ADAM RUSSELL MILLER, Respondent. / REQUEST FOR ISSUANCE OF NOTICE OF NON-COMPLIANCE AND FINDING OF CONTEMPT Pursuant to Rule (f)(2), Rules Regulating The Florida Bar, the undersigned Bar Counsel hereby requests that on April 12, 2017, the Twelfth Judicial Circuit Grievance Committee C, hear the issue of whether Respondent has willfully failed to respond to an official Bar inquiry without good cause and whether Respondent has good cause to excuse Respondent's failure to respond to an official Bar inquiry and whether Respondent should be held in contempt for failure to respond to an official Bar inquiry as set forth below: 1. On January 18, 2017, Respondent was personally served with a Subpoena Duces Tecum requiring him to produce copies of any and all documents relating to monies received and or paid out to four clients in connection with a Notice of Insufficient Funds for Respondent s Capital Bank IOLTA account.

19 Additionally, Respondent was asked to produce these four client files. Respondent brought the originals of these files to Respondent s sworn statement on January 26, 2017 which was reviewed by undersigned counsel and the investigating member of the grievance committee. Respondent did not bring copies of these files to his sworn statement. At the close of Respondent s sworn statement, Respondent represented that he would return to his office to make a copy of the subpoenaed files. Respondent left one original client file in the possession of undersigned counsel. Respondent was provided until February 15, 2017 to produce copies of the remaining requested client files. A copy of the subpoena is attached as Exhibit A, and a copy of the providing Respondent until February 15, 2017 is attached as Exhibit B. 2. Respondent has failed to produce the requested financial records or copies of the three remaining client files as requested. 3. Respondent through his counsel has raised a privilege to the production of these documents. 4. On February 27, 2017, Respondent, by way of his counsel, accepted service of a second Subpoena Duces Tecum. A copy of the second subpoena is attached as Exhibit C and a copy of the confirming acceptance of service by Respondent s counsel is attached as Exhibit D. 5. The second subpoena provided Respondent until March 17, 2017 to produce banking records in connection with: (a) Respondent s operating account, 2

20 (b) Respondent s trust accounts, (c) all financial records for the George S. Johnston and Eileen B. Johnston trust, and (d) Respondent s tax returns. On March 17, Respondent s counsel provided only a portion of the requested documentation. 6. Respondent s counsel has advised that Respondent objects to providing any financial records for the George S. Johnston and Eileen B. Johnston trust or Respondent s personal tax returns due to privilege and confidentiality. 7. Respondent s production on March 17, 2017 also fails to include the following requested information: (a) IOLTA Trust Account, Capital Bank all account records from origination in 2009 through December, For the period of December, 2011 to present, Respondent has not produced any of the following: (1) deposit slips, (2) disbursement journal, (3) client ledgers, or (4) monthly reconciliations/comparisons; (b) IOLTA Trust Account, Wells Fargo Bank, Respondent has not produced any records prior to January, For the period of January, 2014 to October, 2016, Respondent has not produced any of the following: (1) deposit slips, (2) disbursement journal, (3) client ledgers, (4) checks, or (5) monthly reconciliations/comparisons; (c) Wells Fargo Operating Account Respondent has not produced any checks for the requested period. 8.

22 the geer law firm, l.c N. Rocky Point Drive West, Suite 150 Tampa, Florida fax Brett A. Geer, Esq. Admitted: The Supreme Court of Florida U.S. District Court, Middle District of Florida U.S. Court of Appeals, 11th Circuit The Supreme Court of the United States April 5, 2017 Matthew Ian Flicker, Esq. The Florida Bar 4200 George J. Bean Pkwy., Suite 2580 Tampa, Florida Re: Complaint by The Florida Bar; Florida Bar File No ,643 (12C) Dear Mr. Flicker, This letter responds to yours dated March 20, 2017, regarding my client s production per the subpoena by grievance committee and the committee s subsequent reaction. I will frame this response in the manner of responding to a rule to show cause. Mr. Miller has not acted with contempt toward the committee or the disciplinary authority. Indeed, he has cooperated with the committee and the Bar to the best of his ability. His candor and cooperation have been at the expense of his clients confidentiality and his own interests. Two areas of the Bar s inquiry concern Mr. Miller, and also concern the committee. Those are: 1) His failure to provide full trust accounting records; and 2) His objections to producing client files based on his clients directives and to producing his personal tax returns as impertinent to this inquiry. Mr. Miller admits that he has not kept his trust account in compliance with Chapter 5 of the Rules Regulating The Florida Bar. He did not retain his monthly reconciliations of his operating or trust account and he did not retain the original deposit receipts for his IOTA account. He admits that he did not keep proper client ledgers, nor a receipts and disbursements journal. Of course he regrets these record keeping failures. He denies converting any client funds to his own use improperly. Mr. Miller admits loaning money to certain at-risk clients. The loans he made were interest-free. The loans he made to Susan Schorpen are not connected to the probate case in which she is a beneficiary, although he is aware of the amount of her anticipated legacy through confidential communications with her. Thus, he expects repayment on those loans. Another attorney is handling Ms. Schorpen s probate case. Ms. Schorpen is in a position to inherit a substantial legacy, of which Mr. Miller has been made aware, and that explains his willingness to loan her funds to sustain her until her legacy is EXHIBIT F

23 Geer-Flicker [ ,643(12C)] April 5, 2017 Page 2 received. No collateral has been pledged and Mr. Miller has no guarantee of being repaid. Perhaps he is a poor businessman but a good human being. He understands that the Florida Bar does not investigate whether he is a good person but whether he has followed the rules correctly. Regarding the other clients to whom Mr. Miller has provided funds, he did so incidental to legal services he is handling for them, and he expects to be repaid upon the conclusion of their legal matters. Again, no collateral has been pledged and he has no guarantee of repayment of the loans. This humanistic approach to practicing law places him in jeopardy with the Bar, all as a result of issuing a check from his IOTA account for which there were insufficient funds. Ironically, the IOTA check constituted a loan from him to Susan Schorpen. At the time, all funds in his IOTA account were his earned fees. He has not taken another client s money and loaned it to another client. We want to be clear about that. As for a finding of non-compliance or contempt, Mr. Miller cannot produce records that he did not keep or maintain. Because Capital Bank was formerly known by another name and owned by a prior entity, he has had difficulty obtaining records of his banking records there prior to He is working on getting those and has been promised that the archived records will be forthcoming. When those are produced to him, copies will be provided to the committee. We ask the committee s patience and indulgence as to this. As for copies of checks written against the Wells Fargo account, Mr. Miller assures me that those will be forthcoming in the near future as well. The bank s procedures do not include copying canceled checks to the account holder. As for the Wells Fargo IOTA account, he has stated under oath that the account was used very little before being closed. What he has produced is all there is. Of course the bank can be subpoenaed. The subpoenaed Client files and his personal tax returns are another matter. As his counsel I am having difficulty determining what probable cause exists for the committee to subpoena such materials. There is no complaining witness framing or driving this inquiry-complaint; that is, none of the clients have complained. Accordingly, the original subpoena commanding Mr. Miller to produce certain client files was without sufficient legal basis, in our estimation. He produced them for inspection without legal advice and at odds with his client s confidences. At the time, he ceded possession to the Florida Bar of his client file on Susan Schorpen. He produced for inspection the other subpoenaed client files, which Bar counsel and the investigating member apparently reviewed but did not reproduce. Thus, he was re-subpoenaed to re-produce those other client files. Upon consulting with those clients, Mr. Miller was advised by them that they do not consent to their confidential information being revealed, and therefore he has objected to producing those again. This places Mr. Miller in an ethical quandary.

24 Geer-Flicker [ ,643(12C)] April 5, 2017 Page 3 In Buntrock v. Buntrock, 419 So. 2d 402, 403 (Fla. 4th DCA 1982), it was held that the ethical rule protects more than confidential communications, it protects the confidences and secrets of a client. This protection is broader than the evidentiary attorney-client privilege, and applies even though the same information is discoverable from other sources. Id. Even in criminal cases, information that a lawyer learns about a client s past acts must be considered confidential under Rule 4-1.6, and ordinarily may not be revealed without the client s consent. Fla. Ethics Op (Oct. 1, 1991) (holding that a criminal defense attorney who learns that client is proceeding under a false name may not inform the court of that fact). Thus, for Mr. Miller to again produce his client s confidences creates a dilemma of failing to comply with the committee by violating his ethical obligation to his clients and the express directives of his clients upon proper consultation. As stated, the ethical obligation to guard the confidences and secrets of a client is broader than, and independent of, the attorney-client privilege. In re Duque, 134 B.R. 679, 688 (S.D. Fla. 1991) (attorneys have fulfilled their ethical obligation by vigorously invoking the privilege against a subpoena deemed to be invasive of confidentiality requirement). Not only does Rule impose a duty to maintain confidentiality of the client s information, it imposes upon lawyers a correlative duty to refrain from inducing others to disclose confidential matters. Rentclub, Inc. v. Transamerica Rental Financial Corp., 811 F.Supp. 651, 654 (M.D. Fla. 1992) (an appearance of impropriety arose when a lawyer induced another to breach a client s confidence). This could be perceived as applying to the committee compelling an unrepresented attorney to produce client files. Under these circumstances, Mr. Miller is obliged to vigorously resist a demand that he violate his ethical duties. Like many lawyers, he was intimidated by this process and by the first subpoena, and showed confidential client files to Bar representatives without due consideration and without first consulting the clients. Now that he has consulted with them, Mr. Miller is fairly obliged to object and decline, and to exhaust his remedies. With respect, his position in this regard is a legal one and does not amount to intentional non-compliance, nor should it support a finding of contempt. As to my client s objection to producing his personal tax returns as identified in the subpoenas, we cannot connect the dots between the initial reason this file was opened (IOTA imbalance), and what has been disclosed, with any prospect of probable cause for such an intrusion into his personal finances. This recalcitrance is not intended to deny the committee material evidence; it is a request for a statement of probable cause as to why such evidence is material to the issues the committee is properly investigating. Mr. Miller s privacy concerns are implicated by such commands for disclosure of personal information, such that he feels justified in requesting clarification as to what probable cause exists for the command, upon which the committee is relying. Under these circumstances we respectfully request that the committee accept Mr. Miller s

25 Geer-Flicker [ ,643(12C)] April 5, 2017 Page 4 response to the subpoenas in the light it is intended, which intent does not include obstruction of the committee s work, but rather higher concerns governing disclosure of his clients and his own personal information without probable cause. Thank you. Sincerely, Brett Alan Geer Brett A. Geer cc: Adam R. Miller, Esq. Ms. Renee Brady, Investigating Member
