Three San Diego lawyers have been disbarred by the State Bar of California, according to the California Bar Journal. Jac Francois Pouliot was disbarred January 9. He was convicted in 2011 of assault with a deadly weapon, but failed to participate in disciplinary proceedings before the bar. In a dispute, he pointed a gun and red laser at neighbors who were having a party, and whose dog he accused of barking incessantly. Pouliot had two loaded guns in his home.

Wade Rowland Sanders was disbarred January 9. He had been convicted in 2009 of possession of child pornography. He had in his computer 600 images of minors engaged in sexual activity. After he was suspended by the bar, he failed to notify clients, opposing counsel and others of the suspension.

Albert Francis Quintrall was disbarred January 30. The bar cited three instances of misconduct, including misappropriating $27,935 of money belonging to a client. He had negotiated that sum on behalf of the client, and was paid, but did not pass the money on to the client, at one point stating that he had reached no settlement, according to the journal.

It would be interesting to know more detail about these ex-attorneys. For example, their law school background, their ages, and the nature of their practice that led up to these actions. It could help us all in evaluating and deciding to hire an attorney if we know more about those who have run afoul of the law and bar rules, when we are seeking counsel.

Visduh: I have the detailed bar charges. But would it be worth it to post them? Best, Don Bauder

Visduh, then just do a CBA attorney search. It tells you everything you just asked, including copies of the documents.

March 11, 2013

Only 3 ( so far) ?

Murphyjunk: Three were listed in the most recent issue of the California Bar Journal. Best, Don Bauder

"Pouliot had two loaded guns in his home"

would someone be in less trouble if they were not loaded?

March 11, 2013

Murphyjunk: I don't know if one is in more trouble when the guns are loaded. (I would think that in any case in which the guns are loaded, and so is the owner of the guns, trouble may lurk, but I don't know that this had anything to do with his problems.) He did enough to get himself in trouble without consideration of the loaded guns. Best, Don Bauder

Sorry Don. I'm a fan of yours but this isn't reporting. It's copying the State Bar Journal. Reporting would be covering why the DA hasn't prosecuted Quintrall. The money is still gone.

Oh, here's a tip. Patricia Gregory who was prosecuted for embezzling clients funds was finally charged by the DA, and pled guilty. But, she is behind on her restitution, (and also failed in her attempts to get her case transferred to another country.) Unfortunately, the new Probation Officer, Karen Culley (619-574-5602), seems a little slow in getting up to speed on the case. So Gregory's timing scam continues working, even though she's clearly in violation of the conditions of her probation.

Rockmedia: True. This wasn't reporting. You will find a number of blog items here that are picked up from other sources. I thought the Journal covered the story very well and no new reporting was necessary. Best, Don Bauder

There's value in publicizing disbarments. The public should be aware that many lawyers are thieves.

March 11, 2013

more than many from my experience.

March 12, 2013

Murphyjunk: Frankly, I find that lawyers working earnestly for the public good are rarities. Best, Don Bauder

March 12, 2013

They just consider themselves the more important of the public.

March 14, 2013

Burwell: Very true. And judges are lawyers. Best, Don Bauder
