Attorney Maria Avinante of Honolulu; cheating slacker


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


Disciplinary Counsel found Maria guilty of engaging in the following misconduct.

  • Engaged in a pattern of misconduct
  • Misconduct involved multiple violations of the Rules of Conduct
  • Lied to bar authorities (Screw you, said Maria!)
  • Failed to act with due diligence (slacker)
  • Commingled client funds with personal funds (cheater)
  • Applied $1,100 in unearned fees to her own personal use
  • Breached fiduciary duties owed to her client
  • Failed to re-submit motion for divorce via public notice for seven months
  • Misappropriated [stole] portion of client funds
  • Failed to promptly provide client with accounting fees received

As a direct consequence of her misconduct, the enablers for Attorney Misfits sitting on the Hawaii Supreme Court punished Maria by gifting her a complimentary 30-day suspension of her law license.


As we speak (ca. April 2019), Maria practices with the Law Office of M. Cora Avinante at 550 Halekauwila Street in Honolulu, Hawaii.
