Attorney Vincent Uchendu of Washington, DC; ethically deprived

The D.C. Bar presented Vincent C. Uchendu with a law license in 1991 after he graduated from Howard University Law School.
The D.C. Court of Appeals found Vincent guilty of the following misconduct.
The New Jersey Office of Attorney Ethics found Vincent guilty of the following misconduct in regards to discipline he received from the D.C. Court of Appeals.
  1. Engaged in conduct prejudicial to the administration of justice
  2. Engaged in conduct involving fraud, deceit, dishonesty or misrepresentation
  3. Lack of candor toward a court
Vincent’s main practice in D.C. involved representing clients in probate matters. Over a period of several years, Kenneth unlawfully signed his clients’ names on at least 16 documents that he filed with the D.C. Probate Court. Kenneth also notarized his own signature on numerous documents, which is universally illegal.
At the disciplinary hearing, Kenneth claimed that he had his client’s permission to forge their signatures and then falsely notarize documents for filing with the court. He went on to testify that the Probate Court was aware of his false notarizations and phony signatures. However, Ken’s testimony was proven false after several Probate Court employees testified.
Vincent’s Hyperbolic (BS) Ignorance of the Law
Vincent had the audacity to testify at the disciplinary hearing that “did not know that his conduct was improper.” Put simply, Vinny the Moron’s defense was “ignorance of the law.”
All affidavits require that the notary swear under oath that the person signing the affidavit personally appeared before him/her. Therefore, for Vinny to claim he didn’t know he was violating the law doesn’t pass the involuntary laugh test.
As a consequence of his misconduct, the cheerleaders for Attorney Misfits sitting on the D.C. Court of Appeals punished Vincent by gifting him with a complimentary 30-day suspension of his law license.
On his self-serving website at www.Vincentuchendulawfirm.com, Vincent makes no mention of being found guilty of the misconduct set forth above. Apparently, Vincent doesn’t want to take any chances on limiting his future victim pool.
As we speak (ca. September 2012) Vincent practices at 50 F Street Northwest in Washington, D.C.
