Attorney Daniel Bacon of San Francisco; ethical leper-con

 
The state of California provided Daniel Ray Bacon with a law license in 1982 after he graduated from the University of San Francisco Law School.
 
The California Bar Court found Daniel guilty of the following misconduct.
 
After he represented a client in a wrongful termination case for two and a half years, Daniel was fired by the client, who asked for a refund of $900 he had paid to Daniel as advance costs for an arbitrator.
 
The client fired Daniel after he was asked to pay additional fees for continued representation. When Daniel refused to refund the money, the client took the matter to small claims court and obtained a judgment against Daniel.
 
Two days after the court judgment, Daniel removed the $900 from his client trust account and applied it to attorney’s fees and costs in the wrongful termination case. He also appealed the small claims judgment in the superior court. On appeal, the court ordered Daniel to pay the client $1,500 plus costs and interest.
 
Daniel only paid the court ordered judgment after the State Bar was contacted regarding the matter.
 
As a consequence of his misconduct, the supporters for Attorney Misfits sitting on the California Bar Court punished Daniel by gifting him with a complimentary 60-day suspension of his law license.
 
As we speak (ca. December 2012) Daniel practices at 234 Van Ness Avenue in San Francisco, California.
