Bogollagama the lawyer defrocked

A three-judge panel in the Fairfax County Circuit Court in the US state of Virginia has revoked the law licence of Chandra M. Bogollagama of McLean, Virginia for violating disciplinary rules that govern diligence, communication with clients, use of an attorney trust account, and the obligation to return unearned fees.

According to the Virginia State Bar, the court also found that Mr. Bogollagama engaged in conduct involving dishonesty, fraud, deceit, or misrepresentation, and that in connection with the VSB's investigation of a disciplinary matter he knowingly made a false statement of material fact.

The violations occurred in six cases in which clients hired him to procure U.S. visas for themselves or relatives.
