August 15, 2014

MARILYN SUE SCHEER [#132544], 60, of Woodland Hills, was suspended from the practice of law for two years and until she makes restitution and was ordered to take the MPRE and comply with rule 9.20 of the California Rules of Court. She was also placed on three years’ probation and faces a three-year suspension if she does not comply with the terms of her probation. The order took effect Aug. 15, 2014.

A hearing judge found Scheer culpable of misconduct in 32 loan modification cases concerning four clients in California and 28 clients in 12 other states. Scheer appealed the matter to the Review Department, arguing, among other things, that she did not engage in the unauthorized practice of law in the other jurisdictions because she never held herself out as entitled to practice, her services were limited to issues of federal law and the services she provided can be performed by a non-attorney.

A three-judge review panel agreed with the judge’s findings of culpability and aggravation in 30 of the client matters, found less evidence in mitigation and agreed that she should be suspended for a minimum of two years.

Specifically, the panel found her culpable of 26 acts of out-of-state unauthorized practice of law, 26 acts of collecting illegal fees and four acts of demanding and collecting fees prior to performing loan modification work in California.

In mitigation, Scheer had no prior record of discipline. She also received limited mitigation for presenting evidence of her good character and cooperating with the State Bar.
