One of the top-rated bankruptcy attorneys in St. Louis appears on the Missouri list of paying customers for the Ashley Madison extramarital-affairs Web site.

Spencer P. Desai, who has achieved "Super Lawyer" status, is a principal at the Carmody MacDonald firm. Before that, Desai was a named and co-founding partner with Desai Eggman and Mason. That firm closed last December, with a number of its key attorneys joining the Carmody firm.

Desai is among 12 Carmody attorneys included in August on the "Best Lawyers in America" listing for 2017. He is recognized in the banking and finance law category.

This is from Desai's bio at the Carmody MacDonald Web site:

Spencer P. Desai has more than 25 years of experience in bankruptcy law. He has focused his practice on bankruptcy, business reorganization, business loan workouts, debtor/creditor rights, Chapter 7 and 11 bankruptcy, and commercial litigation. His representation of corporate and individual borrowers includes bankruptcy proceedings, workouts, defense of fraud and collection actions and asset protection planning. Mr. Desai has advocated for banks and lenders on a wide array of issues, including loan enforcement, workouts, lender liability defense, prosecution of fraud actions, and stay relief and other matters in the United States Bankruptcy Courts. He has also represented a broad diversity of other constituencies including Chapter 7 trustees, creditors’ committees, lessors, and business acquirers.

A bankruptcy attorney is in a position of supreme trust. And yet, this guy's wife can't trust him. Pretty grim.
