But he was not the first.  According to this article, several lawyers and even a judge were similarly disbarred, and two of those lawyers were convicted on federal charges and remain behind bars. 

Unfortunately, the general public tends to assume that a few bad apples spoil the whole bunch.  And so it goes.  The general reputation of lawyers continues to suffer.
