Attorney Steven Barkin of Rancho Palos Verdes, CA; crook, repeater

 
The state of California provided Steven Jacob Barkin with a law license in 1998 after he graduated from Western State University Law School in Fullerton, California.
 
The California Bar Court found Steven guilty of misconduct on at least two occasions as set forth below.
 
Steven’s 1st bite at the Attorney Misfit Apple Tree

 
The vast majority of Steven’s misconduct involved his mishandling of client trust account. He repeatedly misappropriated (stole) client money. Steven used his client trust accounts to pay personal and business expenses. He bounced client trust account checks. Steven also failed to return client phone calls and he made repeatedly lied and made false promises to his clients that he never kept.
 
As a result of Steven stealing client funds and not paying medical liens with client settlement funds, several clients were contacted by collection agencies and one was forced into bankruptcy.
 
As a consequence of his misconduct, the supporters for Attorney Misfits sitting on the California Bar Court punished Gene by gifting him with a complimentary 4-year suspension of his law license.
 
Steven’s 2nd bite at the Attorney Misfit Apple Tree

  1. Misappropriated (stole) client funds (thief)
  2. Failed to return client phone calls
  3. Failed to deposit client funds into client trust accounts
  4. Failed to return client files to client after being fired
  5. Failed to cooperate with bar investigation (Up Yours, said Steven!)
After receiving settlement funds for six (6) clients, Steven did not pay their medical bills, which totaled $13,300. Instead, Steven misappropriated (stole) the $13,300.
 
As a consequence of his misconduct, the supporters for Attorney Misfits sitting on the California Bar Court punished Gene by gifting him with a complimentary stayed 3-year suspension of his law license. In truth, the comedians sitting on the California Bar Court didn’t mete out any meaningful punishment.
 
Because Attorney Misfits in California are held to a much lower standard of conduct then everyone else, Steven was never criminally charged for stealing his client’s funds.
 
As we speak (ca. December 2012) Steven practices with the Law Office of Steven M. Barkin at 28364 South Western Avenue in Rancho Palos Verdes, California.
