									)
ALBERT P.C. LEFEBVRE				)




	This matter is before the Court pursuant to M. Bar R. 7.2(b)(1), (2) on
an information filed by the Board of Overseers of the Bar against the
Respondent, Albert P.C. Lefebvre.  Lefebvre has been served with a copy of
the information and summons.
	Lefebvre is an attorney who practices in Maine and is subject to the
Maine Bar Rules.  The two count information charges, inter alia, that
Lefebvre violated M. Bar R. 3.1(a) (conduct unworthy of an attorney);
3.2(f)(2), (3), (4) (other conduct adversely reflecting on honesty,
trustworthiness, or fitness to be a lawyer, conduct involving dishonesty and
fraud, and conduct prejudicial to the administration of justice); 3.3(a)
(misconduct involving excessive fees); 3.6(a)(2)(3) (misconduct during
representation); 3.6(e)(2)(iii), (iv) (misconduct involving preserving the
identity of funds and property); 3.7(b) (misconduct during litigation); and
3.7(e)(1) (misconduct before a tribunal).
	On June 23, 1998, following a jury trial, a judgment of conviction of
one felony count of perjury (Class C) was entered against Lefebvre pursuant
to 17-A M.R.S.A. § 451 (1983 & Supp. 2000).  The perjury resulted from
Lefebvre's having made one or more false material statements to the Court
(Glassman, J.) under oath during a disciplinary hearing held on November
21, 1996, in the matter of Board of Overseers of the Bar v. Albert P.C.
Lefebvre, Docket No. BAR-96-8.  By this Court's order of October 20, 1998,
Lefebvre was suspended from the practice of law because of that conviction.
	On July 24, 1998, the York County Probate Court (Nadeau, J.) issued a
Decision and Order in the matter of In re:  Irene A. Bisaillion, Docket No.
1991-0510(4).  The court found that Lefebvre, as conservator for the Estate
of Irene A. Bisaillion, engaged in misconduct including defalcation, and that
such conduct constituted a violation of his fiduciary duties.  He was ordered
to reimburse the estate in the amount of $85,365.01 and was terminated as
conservator.
	The Court finds that Lefebvre has violated M. Bar R. 3.1(a); 3.2(f)(2),
(3), (4); 3.3(a); 3.6(a)(2), (3); 3.6(e)(2)(iii), (iv); 3.7(b); and 3.7(e)(1).  Those
findings are not challenged.
	Accordingly, it is hereby ordered that Albert P.C. Lefebvre be and
hereby is disbarred from the practice of law in the State of Maine effective
this date.
