September 21, 2013

MICHAEL B. STONE [#160177], 56, of Las Vegas, was suspended for two years, stayed, placed on two years’ probation with an actual 90-day suspension and ordered to take the MPRE, pay restitution and comply with rule 9.20 of the California Rules of Court. The order took effect Sept. 21, 2013.

Stone stipulated that he did not comply with the terms of two private reprovals he received in 2011. Stone was late or failed to submit quarterly reports to probation. He also failed to provide proof he attended Ethics School, passed the test given at the end or paid restitution as required by one reproval order.

Following the other reproval, Stone failed to submit any quarterly probation reports or comply with fee arbitration conditions of his reproval. He also failed to provide proof that he passed the MPRE or attended Ethics School and Client Trust Accounting School.

In mitigation, Stone entered into a pre-trial stipulation and was suffering significant financial difficulties at the time of his misconduct.

Stone received one of the 2011 private reprovals for failure to perform with competence, improper withdrawal from employment, and failure to promptly return unearned advanced fees, refund unused advanced costs, respond to client inquiries or comply with a court order. The other private reproval was for improper withdrawal from employment and failure to deposit client funds in a client trust account, render appropriate accounts to client or promptly return unearned advanced fees.
