Attorney Maria Avinante of Honolulu; lying loser  


The state of Hawaii presented Maria Corazon Avinante with a law license in 1978 after she graduated from California Western School of Law.


The Office of Disciplinary Counsel found Maria guilty of the following misconduct.

  • Commingled client funds with personal funds
  • Breached her fiduciary duties to her client (victim)
  • Failed to deposit client funds in separate client trust account
  • Misconduct involved multiple violations
  • Failed to submit motion for publication of divorce for seven (7) months
  • Misappropriated (stole) portion of funds owing to client
  • Failed to promptly provide client with accounting of client funds
  • Lied in bar registration materials for two consecutive years that she was in compliance with rules governing the handling of client funds

Engaged in a pattern of misconduct

As a consequence of her misconduct, the apologists for Attorney Misfits sitting on Disciplinary Counsel punished Maria by gifting her with a complimentary 120-day suspension of her law license.

As we speak (ca. February 2015), Maria practices with The Law Office of M. Cora Avinante at 550 Halekauwila Street in Honolulu, Hawaii.
