Las Vegas bankruptcy attorney suspended in tax evasion case

The Nevada Supreme Court has suspended Las Vegas bankruptcy attorney Randolph Goldberg after he pleaded guilty to one count of trying to avoid federal income taxes.

The court decision is a temporary suspension while the Southern Nevada Disciplinary Board decides sanctions against Goldberg, who was originally charged in September with four counts of tax evasion and five counts of structuring financial transactions to evade reporting requirements.

After his plea, Goldberg voluntarily suspended his law license for two years.

Goldberg, who was admitted to practice law in Nevada in 1996, is to be sentenced in federal court May 23. He faces a maximum prison term of five years and three years of supervision. Under the plea agreement, the government can argue for more than $400,000 in restitution.
