"[A] seasoned trial attorney who practiced law for almost 25 without discipline before his legal services crossed the ethical line at his peril" has received a proposed suspension of two years, with a year stayed on two years of probation, by the California State Bar Court.
After a default judgment against the client, the attorney recorded two deeds of trust against client property that caused the court of appeals to observe that "This case presents the paradigm illustration of a fraudulent conveyance."
The court here found that the conduct involved moral turpitude. (Mike Frisch)
