Professional Misconduct

This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority.

  1. Discipline, probation, with no actual suspension
    issued in CA, 1997


    This sanction means the attorney had a suspension placed on hold (and ultimately removed) by complying with certain requirements.

    Barry’s comment: “In mitigation, he had purchased a large statewide law practice which, unknown to him, was deeply in debt with hundreds of thousands of dollars in tax liabilities. After major reductions in the caseload, the business was destroyed in the Northridge earthquake. Bernstein ultimately repaid all clients.”
