August 30, 2014

OZOEME MOSES ONYEJEKWE [#152809], 55, of Los Angeles, was suspended from the practice of law for six months and ordered to take the MPRE and comply with rule 9.20 of the California Rules of Court. He was also placed on three years’ probation and faces a two-year suspension if he does not comply with the terms of his disciplinary probation. The order took effect Aug. 30, 2014.

Onyejekwe stipulated to misconduct in one client matter: commingling and failing to promptly, as requested by the client, pay funds that the client’s medical provider was entitled to receive.

In 2010, Onyejekwe settled a client’s personal injury case for $7,500 and received the funds shortly afterward. Prior to depositing the money, he issued a $2,316.66 check to the client from his client trust account. The payment was made using earned fees that he should have removed from his trust account. After depositing the funds and deducting his fees, Onyejekwe maintained $2,316.66 in his trust account to pay his client’s medical lien. He did not pay it until Feb. 7, 2013, after receiving notice from the client that the debt had gone unpaid since July 1, 2010 and that a collection agency was pursuing her to pay the debt.

Between May 1, 2010 and Feb. 28, 2013, Onyejekwe did not promptly remove funds from his trust account which he had earned as fees and with which he paid numerous personal expenses – including payments for his son’s rent, office rent, payroll and office supplies.

In mitigation, he entered into a pretrial stipulation with the State Bar.

Onyejekwe had one prior record of discipline, a suspension for failing to inform a client of a settlement offer and of his acceptance of the settlement offer in one client matter, and failing to promptly pay medical liens in two client matters.
