Attorney Gregory Antone of Half Moon Bay, CA; serial moron, repeat offender

 

The state of California provided Gregory J. Antone with a law license in 1974 after he graduated from the University of California Hastings Law School in San Francisco.

 

The California State Bar Court found Greg guilty of the following misconduct. 

 

  • Recklessly failed to perform legal services competently (serial Moron)
  • Intentionally failed to perform legal services competently (serial Dufus)
  • Repeatedly failed to perform legal services competently (serial Dumbo)
  • Failed to prosecute client’s claims in a timely manner
  • Sanctioned $250 for failure to appear at case management conference
  • Failure to appear at management conferences led court to dismiss client’s case
  • After client’s case dismissed by court for failing to appear a court scheduled case management conferences, Greg too no action to have dismissal set aside
  • Sanctioned $250 by court for failing to appear at case management conference
  • Failed to comply with conditions imposed in regards to prior disciplinary findings
  • Failed to provide any discovery responses to numerous requests from two defendants
  • Failed to oppose tentative court ruling adverse to his client
  • Failed to attend hearing on defendants’ motion to compel discovery
  • Court granted motion to compel and sanctioned Greg $374
  • When defendant’s filed second motion to compel, Greg failed to respond, failed to oppose tentative ruling and was fined an addition $404 by the court
  • Failed to adequately advise client about defendant discovery requests
  • Failed to advise client of motions to compel discovery and consequences for not responding
  • Failed to take steps to avoid reasonably foreseeable prejudice to his client prior to effectively withdrawing in willful violation of the rules of conduct
  • Failed to communicate significant developments to his client
  • Admitted to failing to appear at seven (7) scheduled case management conferences on behalf of his clients as plaintiffs in Hawthrone, et al v. Card, et al
  • For failing to appear at the 7 case management conferences, the trial court sanction Greg in the amount of $2,200 
  • Greg failed to pay the $2,200 court imposed sanctions
  • Failed to cooperate in ethics investigation involving three matters (Up yours, said Greg!)
  • Disobeyed numerous court orders
  • Willfully failed to change membership address with the State Bar
  • In another matter, the trial court sanctioned Greg four times for $1,150 for his failure to appear at four (4) case management conferences
  • Failed to appear and produce his client at two scheduled depositions
  • Failure to appear at two depositions led opposing counsel to file motion to compel, which Greg did not respond to and also failed to appear at a hearing on the motion
  • Engaged in multiple acts of misconduct
  • Failure to appear at depositions and failure to appear at motion to compel hearing led trial court to sanction Greg $2,250 which was payable to the defendant
  • Failed to appear at court scheduled show cause hearing and was sanctioned $1,000 for not appearing
  • Failed to pay the $2,250 and $1,000 court ordered sanctions
  • Willfully violated terms of prior disciplinary probation
  • Misconduct caused harm to clients
  • Filed bankruptcy in regards to the $6,728 in court imposed sanctions

As one would suspect, this wasn’t Greg’s First bite at the Attorney Misfit Apple Tree. He previously received two (2) complimentary reprovals and two (2) complimentary terms of probation for engaging in a variety of misconduct.

 

Greg’s license was also suspended two (2) times for his failure to pay mandatory annual State Bar member dues. 

 

As a consequence of his misconduct, the apologists for Attorney Misfits sitting on the Bar Court punished Greg by gifting him with a complimentary 1-year suspension of his law license.

 

As we speak (ca. September 2014) Greg practices with the Law Offices of Gregory J. Antone in Half Moon Bay, California, which is located in San Mateo County.
