Discipline Summaries

April 17, 2003

AMANDA LOIS LAMAR [#184715], 34, of Stockton was suspended for three years, stayed, actually suspended for 60 days and until the State Bar Court grants a motion to terminate the suspension and was ordered to take the MPRE. If the actual suspension exceeds 90 days, she must comply with rule 955; if it exceeds two years, she must prove her rehabilitation. The order took effect April 17, 2003.

In a default proceeding, the State Bar Court found that Lamar failed to perform legal services competently, communicate with her client, inform the client of significant developments or keep her address current with the bar, and she improperly withdrew from employment.

She was hired on a contingency basis to represent a client in a wrongful termination matter. The client told her she was having difficulty getting medical coverage for a bone marrow transplant and that she believed the medical condition caused her termination. Lamar filed the proper complaint form and later filed suit.

The case settled and the attorney for the defendant mailed a settlement agreement to Lamar to be signed by the client and asked the court to take the case off calendar. He left three telephone messages and sent two letters inquiring about the settlement offer. Hearing nothing, he filed a motion to dismiss the case several months later, citing delay in prosecution. The court granted the motion.

Lamar never filed an opposition or requested a hearing and she didn’t tell the client that the case was dismissed. She did not return her client’s phone calls for more than a year.
