Illegal But Not Unconscionable

The California State Bar Court has recommended a a six-month suspension followed by astayed two-year suspension and probation of two years in a matter involving an attorney who "collected illegal, but not unconscionable, fees in...eight client matters."

The court rejected charges that the conduct involved moral turpitude.

The court concluded that a suspension was appropriate "[g]iven [the attorney's] multiple violations of loan modification laws and his lack of insight into his misconduct..." (Mike Frisch)
