The California State Bar Court has declared that J. Douglass Jennings Jr. is ineligible to practice law because he is facing disbarment. The court found him culpable of of nine counts of failing to avoid interests adverse to a client and one count of failing to perform competently. The state supreme court must judge on actual disbarment.

A Reader article late last year revealed that Jennings and his wife are in Chapter 7 bankruptcy. The Reader revealed in the same article that in 2013, bankruptcy court Judge Louise DeCarl Adler charged both Jennings and his wife with "embezzlement and/or larceny" in a transaction with "fraudulent and/or felonious intent." She accused them of actions that were "willful and malicious" and wrote a letter to the U.S. attorney's office about their activity.

The Jennings law firm's website boasted that the firm was "proudly recognized as one of the leading estate and tax planning law firms not only in California but in the United States and internationally."

Bankruptcy Judge Adler handled my husband's company SicommNet Inc. I asked her for a better settlement but was denied. I still need to take the reorganized blankety-blanks to another court to discover any fraud and might know someone who already has. Which court do I concentrate on next? Bankruptcy was a bust but Adler seems to know her stuff.

shirleyberan: Judge Adler does know her stuff. You will have to see an attorney as to where you go next. Best, Don Bauder

shirleyberan: I understand your distrust of attorneys. But I think you will have to go to one. In any case, I can't help you on the matter. Best, Don Bauder
