I wholeheartedly endorse Mr. Ojeda. I have known him for 35 years, and have frequently both associated with him on cases as well as sought his professional opinion on family law matters. His wisdom and practical advice have been invaluable on many occasions! We family lawyers treasure those whose opinion we can trust. No one can know it all, and when I don't, I approach Mr. Ojeda who is not only patient but incisive.... "cutting to the chase" and getting to the heart of a matter and how to approach it. I highly recommend his legal services and have found his character and ethics, as well, to be outstanding.

This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority.
This sanction means the attorney lost his or her license to practice law for a period of time. The attorney typically returns to practicing law when the suspension expires.
Bernal’s comment: “This resulted from staff who were under my supervision. Since it was my office I paid the price although cases were handled buy other attorneys and staff. Affected clients received refunds or got their bankruptcy done. Bar was not willing to put that in the stipulation. Also these things occurred in 2006. Took 4 years to reach a settlement. 11 years have passed since then and I've been i good standing.”
This sanction means the attorney did something wrong but may still practice law. The Bar placed conditions on the lawyer's activities to try to prevent a recurrence of the wrongful act.
Bernal’s comment: “No client was harmed. Had to do with paying office rent using my trust account that held my attorney fees I had earned. Happened in 1995. 20 years ago but not resolved until 1997.”
