Discipline Summaries

June 15, 2012

DIANE AMELIA WALDER, 54, of Playa del Rey was suspended for three years, stayed, placed on three years of probation with an 18-month actual suspension and she was ordered to take the MPRE. She receives credit for a period of interim suspension that began May 3, 2011. The order took effect June 15, 2012.

Walder pleaded guilty in 2010 to theft of U.S. property valued at less than $1,000.

While employed as an attorney adviser to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development in Los Angeles, Walder received benefits from the Small Business Administration by claiming as her primary residence a Mississippi property that was destroyed by Hurricane Katrina. She and her husband owned the property. She received less than $1,000 in benefits to which she was not entitled.

Walder made restitution of $25,000 to the SBA, resigned her position with the government and agreed not to seek employment with any federal agency or department.

The crime was a misdemeanor involving moral turpitude.

In mitigation, Walder has no discipline record in 20 years of practice and she cooperated with the bar’s investigation.
