Former DA Grogan loses law license

A former Outagamie County district attorney lost his law license.

The state Supreme Court is revoking Bill Grogan's law license. He was the district attorney in the 1980s, and his license had been suspended since 2011.

The court went along with the recommendation of the Office of Lawyer Regulation. A referee ruled that Grogan was guilty of 33 counts of misconduct, involving eight clients.

A reserve judge held a six-day hearing for Grogan, and determined that he "grossly mistreated" clients. Judge Robert Kinney said many of them were financially challenged or vulnerable. He said that Grogan was meeting some clients at Burger King, taking their money, and "essentially disappearing into the night."

Grogan will have to repay former clients more than $11,000. He also has to pay nearly $38,000 to cover the cost of the investigation.
