Valerie Jarrett Business Partner Dan Mahru is Disbarred
From the Chicago Daily Law Review
The justices also disbarred on consent Daniel S. Mahru of Chicago following his guilty plea to a federal criminal information — charging him with defrauding his mother and the estate set up to provide for her care. M.R. 25052. Mahru and Tony Rezko are former business partners. Rezko continues serving a 10 ½ year prison term for plotting to squeeze $7 million in kickbacks from firms that wanted to do business with the state of Illinois.
The misconduct that led to Mahru’s disbarment did not involve Rezko, said Mahru’s attorney, Jeffrey B. Steinback.
Mahru faced serious personal concerns and did not actively practice law for some time, Steinback said.
Mahru “believes that seeking [disbarment on consent] from the Supreme Court is appropriate under all the circumstances regarding both his case and his personal life,” Steinback said.
