Discipline Summaries

October 4, 2008

DANIEL SLIJEPCEVICH [#152392], 49, of San Rafael was suspended for one year, stayed, placed on two years of probation with a 30-day actual suspension and was ordered to take the MPRE within one year. The order took effect Oct. 4, 2008.

Slijepcevich stipulated that in handling a personal injury case, he committed an act of moral turpitude by endorsing the name of one payee on a settlement check without notifying the payee and without its authorization.

In 2004, the Rawlings Co., which specializes in recovering medical expenses, sent Slijepcevich a claim for his client’s medical benefits. Rawlings had paid about $9,900 for her treatment and had filed a lien with the other party’s insurance company, RMIS. Slijepcevich notified both companies that his client did not have automobile insurance and he was seeking only to recover lost wages, not medical expenses.

Subsequently RMIS settled the matter for $15,000 but Slijepcevich did not notify Rawlings. The settlement check was issued to Slijepcevich, his client and Rawlings; Slijepcevich cashed it and deposited it in his client trust account without notifying Rawlings. He also sent his client’s signed release for all claims to RMIS without disclosing that Rawlings did not sign the release and in fact was not aware of it.

He distributed the settlement money to his client and himself.

When Rawlings learned about the check, it complained to the bar.

Slijepcevich also stipulated that he failed to perform legal services competently.

In mitigation, he cooperated with the bar’s investigation, offered to pay Rawlings some funds and he has family problems.
