A lawsuit accuses a Denver attorney of having illicit relationships with law clients, filming sexual liaisons in his office and going so far as marrying some of them in a polygamist union because it was "commanded of God."

Charles L. Fife, who specializes in drunken driving law, was sued by a client who claims Fife surreptitiously filmed himself having sex with women including clients. The plaintiff’s name is listed as Jane Doe because she claims to be the victim of sexual exploitation.

"For at least the last decade, Fife has sexually exploited, victimized and preyed upon women, including female clients, which is a violation of ethical standards," says the lawsuit filed Wednesday in Denver County Court by attorney Jerome Reinan.

Reached by phone Thursday, Fife said he had not been served with any lawsuit. "I have absolutely no comment," Fife said.

In a 2004 lawsuit filed against Fife by Michael McCullough, his former law partner, Fife was accused of abusing illicit drugs, confiscating client funds and having sex with clients, the lawsuit says.

The civil lawsuit claims that Fife, who is married, purports to be a member of a fundamentalist Mormon group that believes in polygamy, and is known to approach and explain his extramarital affairs to his victims through his religious beliefs, the lawsuit says.
