The first sentence of the State Bar Court opinion is: “This case illustrates ethical problems that arise when an attorney fails to supervise nonlawyers in a high volume law practice.” The lawyer’s loan modification practice grew quite large and he lost control of what was happening at one of his offices. When he discovered the situation, he attempted to correct the irregularities and eventually contacted the local district attorney and the State Bar. The State Bar Court recommended that the lawyer “be suspended for two years and until he pays restitution and complies with standard [Rules of Procedure of the State Bar, title IV, Standards for Attorney Sanctions for Professional Misconduct] 1.2(c)(1).” (In the Matter of Jack Chien-Long Huang (State Bar Ct.; January 16, 2014) (Bar No. 242193).)
