Discipline Summaries

March 25, 2006

PATRICIA MIRELES [#171342], 47, of Claremont was suspended for 18 months, stayed, placed on two years of probation with a 60-day actual suspension and was ordered to take the MPRE within one year. If the actual suspension exceeds two years, she must prove her rehabilitation. The order took effect March 25, 2006.

Mireles stipulated to misconduct in eight matters, including practicing while on inactive status for failing to comply with MCLE requirements. She failed to perform legal services competently in two matters, including one in which she failed to oppose a temporary restraining order or attend a hearing on her client’s behalf.

In a child visitation and support matter, she did not provide her client with an itemized accounting of her services until the client complained to the State Bar. In a bankruptcy matter, she did not refund unearned fees after the client fired her, and in two other bankruptcy proceedings, she did not obey the courts’ orders. Mireles also did not refund unearned fees in a criminal case for more than two years.

She was previously disciplined in 2000 for failing to perform legal services competently.

In mitigation, she cooperated with the bar’s investigation and she acted in good faith.

November 5, 2000

PATRICIA MIRELES [#171342], 42, of Ontario was suspended for one year, stayed, placed on 18 months of probation with an actual 30-day suspension and was ordered to make restitution to three clients and take the MPRE within one year. The order took effect Nov. 5, 2000.

Mireles stipulated to eight counts of misconduct in four matters.

She did not do the work she was hired for in two real property foreclosure actions, nor did she return her clients’ phone calls or faxes or refund two $750 advance fees. One client’s home was lost to foreclosure as a result of her actions.

Mireles and another client agreed that Mireles would receive a contingency fee of 27 percent of the gross recovery in a personal injury matter.

She settled the claim, received a check for $11,500 and agreed to accept $3,000 as her fee. The client asked Mireles to pay a $2,500 medical lien, but she did not do so until the physician obtained a judgment against her.

She also did not refund a $475 fee she was paid for a bankruptcy matter. Because Mireles did not prepare or file an opposition to a mortgage company’s motion, the court granted a company motion which allowed for eventual foreclosure of her client’s property.

In mitigation, Mireles has no record of discipline since her 1994 admission to the bar, she cooperated with the bar’s investigation, and she had family problems at the time of the misconduct. She is the primary caretaker for her mother, who was in the process of undergoing a liver transplant.
