A disciplinary summary from the August 2010 online edition of the California Bar Journal:
[An attorney] was suspended for one year, stayed, placed on one year of probation with a 30-day actual suspension and was ordered to take the MPRE within one year. The order took effect Nov. 13, 2009.
[The attorney] was suspended in 2005 for not completing her MCLE requirements, and although she received notices from the State Bar, she did not check her mailbox. As a deputy district attorney for Imperial County, she made numerous court appearances while suspended.
In mitigation, as soon as she became aware of her status, she took corrective action and she advised her superiors of the situation. She cooperated with the bar’s investigation and she submitted character references establishing her good character.
This should serve as a reminder that its bar dues time. If you don't get the bill, its not because the bar decided to waive the payment. (Mike Frisch)
