55 year old Bryan Gruetter had law offices in Portland and Bend and primarily worked personal injury and wrongful death cases.

 

In 2012, investigators starting looking into allegations that Gruetter had used 1.1 million of his client's money to pay for personal and business expenses.

 

When confronted by law enforcement, Gruetter admitted he was "robbing Peter to pay Paul" and resigned his law license and decided not to challenge the allegations.

 

The Oregon State Bar has paid more than 900 thousand dollars to some of his clients to reduce the damage Gruetter has caused.  His claims exhausted the fund's reserves, so member dues will increase until the rserve is fully funded.
