Belchertown Lawyer Disbarred

Wednesday May 22nd, 2013

A Belchertown lawyer has been disbarred after pocketing a client’s insurance settlement.  In 2006 Michael Pasterczyk  negotiated a settlement for a car crash without the victim’s knowledge. He spent the 45-hundred dollars instead of giving it to his client.  The disbarment comes after the state’s highest court upheld a Board of Bar Overseers decision.
