Arias attorney Numri

Summary: Convicted murderer Jodi Arias’ attorney during the trial has been disbarred for writing a tell-all book about his experience working with her.

The attorney that defended convicted murdered Jodi Arias has been disbarred.

A complaint was filed against him and his book “Trapped with Ms. Arias.” The complaint alleges that confidential and private conversations between him and his client Arias were included. Arias claims she has never given approval for publication of the discussions.

Arias’ attorney in her bar charge against Nurmi, Karen Clark, said, “Mr. Nurmi’s self-published book about his representation of Ms. Arias revealed confidential and privileged information, and violated his most basic ethical duties as a lawyer. What he did was knowingly and intentionally wrong. His book violates his duty to protect confidential information, and also contains lies about his client and other misstatements about the case. He wrote the book in a selfish and misguided attempt to ‘redeem’ his public image and enrich himself.”

The prosecutor in the trial, Juan Martinez also wrote a book about his experience. He is facing an ethics complaint. He has been accused of unprofessional behavior at trial. He is appealing his probation sentence.
