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.”
A censure or reprimand issued by the Supreme Court or the State Bar Court that is not a matter of public record unless imposed after the initiation of formal disciplinary proceedings. No period of suspension is imposed. The reproval may be imposed with duties or conditions.
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.”

My ex girlfriend took our son to another state without getting court order. Mr Ojeda met with me charged a reasonable fee and went to court to get the child abuctions unit appointed. Child was returned and now I have 50-50 custody arrangement. I was able to contact him on his cell phone and he always returned my calls.

Met with Mr. Ojeda thereafter I only dealt with him not a secretary. He returned calls and/or texts. Did a great job on my divorce case, knew the law and was prepared.

I can honestly say that this man cares for his clients he won't promise u the world take ur money and then disappear like most other attorneys he will listen to your story because it does matter he will advise you with wisdom and knowledge and he will fight your fight with grace and eloquence. I really hold him in the highest esteem and I feel blessed to have him in my corner . As fat as attorneys go u couldn't get. a better representative than this man !

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.
