February 21, 1998
The probation of GARY E. UHD [#83119], 47, of Fresno was revoked, the previously stayed suspension lifted and he was actually suspended for one year. He was ordered to comply with rule 955 of the California Rules of Court. Credit toward the period of actual suspension shall be given for the period of involuntary inactive enrollment that began Oct. 8, 1997. The order took effect Feb. 21, 1998.Uhd failed to comply with the requirements of a 1995 disciplinary order by not submitting quarterly probation reports or completing courses in law office management and ethics. The original discipline was the result of a complaint from a court reporter and misconduct in six client matters: he provided inadequate legal services and failed to communicate with clients, return unearned fees to one client and return the file to another. In another prior discipline, Uhd stipulated to misconduct in four client matters and probation violations. In prior discipline, Uhd has admitted he is an alcoholic. He has not practiced law since 1995.

GARY E. UHD [#83119], 46, of Fresno was suspended for three years and until he has shown proof of his fitness to practice. The suspension was stayed and he was placed on probation for three years with six months actual suspension. The order, which was effective May 17, 1997, also requires Uhd to pass the MPRE and comply with rule 955.Uhd's misconduct involved failure to respond to reasonable case status inquiries, competently perform legal services and provide an accounting of unearned fees to a client. He also failed to communicate with his client in one matter and failed to promptly pay out funds entrusted to him in another matter. In aggravation, Uhd has a prior record of discipline. In 1995, he received a one-year stayed suspension and two years probation for failure to keep his clients reasonably informed of the status of their case and failure to complete legal services. In addition, Uhd did not comply with certain probation conditions as required by the 1995 discipline order. In mitigation, Uhd is an alcoholic who spent one month in a residential treatment center and has been attending Alcoholics Anonymous meetings four times a week since his sobriety began in 1995. He has not been practicing law since the recognition of his problem with alcohol. In addition, his marriage fell apart and he filed for personal bankruptcy during this period.
