Discipline Summaries

April 19, 2015

JOSE ANGEL TREJO [#262612], 33, of Los Angeles, was suspended from the practice of law for 60 days. He was also placed on three years’ probation and faces a one-year suspension if he does not comply with the terms of his disciplinary probation. The order took effect April 19, 2015.

Trejo stipulated to the circumstances surrounding his Feb. 7, 2014 conviction for driving under the influence of alcohol with a blood alcohol level of .08 or greater causing injury, a felony. On July 10, 2013, while driving drunk, Trejo rear-ended a car stopped in a left-turn lane. He did not stop at the crash scene and drove home.

When investigating officers went to Trejo’s home – using the license plate that had fallen off his car – they found him inspecting the damage to his vehicle. He quickly covered the front end with a car cover. He told officers he had hit something but did not know what because he had been suffering from a migraine headache that blurred his vision. Suspecting he had been drinking, the officers had him perform a field sobriety test. After failing the one-leg stand, Trejo cried out, pretending as though his knees were in pain. Though he refused to do a Breathalyzer, Trejo provided a blood sample and was found to have a blood alcohol level of .15.

In mitigation, Trejo showed remorse for his wrongdoing and entered into a pretrial stipulation with the State Bar.

Trejo had one prior record of discipline, a September 2013 private reproval for failing to supervise his non-attorney employee and charging upfront fees for loan modification work.

July 23, 2014
