Discipline Summaries

November 30, 1997

VINCENT KEITH PATRICK [#152110], 36, of San Diego was disbarred Nov. 30, 1997, and ordered to comply with rule 955.

In this default matter, the State Bar found that Patrick willfully failed to comply with rule 955, a requirement of a discipline order from August 1996. At that time, Patrick was suspended for 30 days until he made restitution to his former clients and complied with rule 955.

Considered as an aggravating factor was Patrick’s prior record of misconduct, which led to the August 1996 discipline order. In one client matter he failed to perform competently, improperly withdrew from employment and failed to return unearned fees. In addition, he failed to respond to client inquiries or cooperate and participate with the bar’s investigation.

August 4, 1996

VINCENT KEITH PATRICK [#152110], 35, of San Diego was suspended for one year, stayed, and placed on one year of probation with an actual 30-day suspension and until he makes restitution. If the actual suspension exceeds two years, he must prove rehabilitation; if it exceeds 90 days, he must comply with rule 955. Patrick also must take the CPRE within one year. The order took effect Aug. 4, 1996.

Patrick committed five acts of misconduct including improperly withdrawing from representation of clients in a bankruptcy matter and failing to perform legal services competently, communicate with clients, return unearned fees and cooperate with the bar's investigation.

Hired in 1993 to file a bankruptcy petition, he never did so and had no subsequent contact with his clients. When they hired a new lawyer, Patrick never returned their fee. He failed to cooperate with the State Bar investigation of that matter.

He did not participate in this disciplinary proceeding.
