Professional Misconduct

This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority.

  1. Discipline, probation, with no actual suspension
    issued in CA, 2011

    updated

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

    Robert’s comment: “Approximately 2 yrs. ago, a client retained me via telephone. The Client couldn't/wouldn't come into office to sign the necessary documents. Instead, the client instructed me to sign her name. i did as the client asked however, neglected to sign it as "by" or "for". When the client demanded a return of fees, which were earned, and was met with a refusal, a complaint was lodged with the State Bar with the allegation that I forged her signature. The State Bar issued sanctions accordingly.”
