Discipline Summaries

July 28, 2012

KAMRAN NIHAL KHAN, 32, of San Ramon was suspended for three years, stayed, placed on three years of probation with an 18-month actual suspension and until he makes restitution and proves his rehabilitation, and he was ordered to take the MPRE and comply with rule 9.20 of the California Rules of Court. The order took effect July 28, 2012.

Khan stipulated to 28 counts of misconduct stemming from a series of loan modification cases.

He advertised loan modification services online through KNK Legal, a business listed at his Mountain View address. He allowed KNK to solicit clients, pay non-lawyers for referrals and to provide loan modification services.

In all seven cases in which he was charged with misconduct, he partnered and split fees with non-lawyers, commingled funds and allowed his name and fee agreement to be used by non-lawyers. Clients never talked to Khan, who did no work on their cases. He admitted he practiced in jurisdictions where he was not admitted, collected illegal fees, failed to refund unearned fees, enabled non-lawyers to engage in the practice of law, failed to perform legal services competently and by accepting advance fees before any loan modification work was completed, he violated state law. He abandoned his law practice without notifying his clients.

Khan was charged with representing 84 clients and collecting advance fees of $167,297 for loan modification services. He did not complete the services he was contracted to perform.

In mitigation, Khan cooperated with the bar’s investigation, had severe financial and family problems and provided evidence of his good character.
