DENNIS SWAN BRODERICK [#98712], 47, of Culver City was suspended for four years, stayed, placed on four years of probation with an 18-month actual suspension, and was ordered to take the MPRE within 18 months and to comply with rule 955. The order took effect April 25, 1997.Broderick stipulated to four counts of wrongdoing. He commingled personal and business funds, wrote 29 checks on his client trust account for personal and business expenses, and wrote six checks against insufficient funds. (He also deposited personal funds in his client trust account to sequester funds from creditors, but stopped in October 1994.) In a personal injury case, he failed to perform legal services or keep his client informed of significant developments. He also failed to comply with a condition of his 1995 disciplinary probation. Broderick was disciplined in 1995 as a result of his withdrawal from a case without permission of the court, failure to pursue another case, failure to perform legal services and commingling of trust funds to avoid seizure of his assets by creditors. Broderick also was disciplined in 1993 for misappropriating client funds. In mitigation, he was candid and cooperative with the bar's investigation.
