Attorney Roy Yoshino of Honolulu; ethical leprechaun

The state of Hawaii presented Roy M. Yoshino with a law license in 1974 after he graduated from the University of California Hastings Law School in San Francisco.
The Office of Disciplinary Counsel found Roy guilty of the following misconduct.
  1. Failed to abide by client’s diction to accept offer of settlement
  2. Knowingly assisted or induced another to violate rules of professional conduct
  3. Knowingly made a false statement of material fact or law to third person
  4. Engaged in conduct involving fraud, deceit, dishonesty or misrepresentation
  5. Failed to abide by client’s decisions concerning objectives of representation
  6. Failed to keep client reasonably informed about status of legal matter
  7. Failed to promptly comply with client requests for information
  8. Commingled client funds with personal funds
  9. Failed to deposit client funds in client trust account as required
  10. Failed to return client records to clients after being discharged
  11. Failed to provide required written fee agreements for seventeen (17) clients
  12. Failed to provide written settlement statements to at least 3 clients as required
  13. Failed to notify two clients of his withdrawal as their attorney
  14. Failed to take reasonable steps to protect client’s interests after being discharged
  15. Faield to properly label client trust accounts
As a consequence of his misconduct, the Patron Saints for Attorney Misfits sitting on Disciplinary Counsel punished Roy by gifting him with a complimentary 1-year suspension of his law license.
As we speak (ca. August 2013), Roy practices at 3359 Esther Street in Honolulu, Hawaii.
