September 3, 2004

LISA F. COLLINS [#176655], 48, of Los Angeles was suspended for two years, stayed, placed on three years of probation, and was ordered to make restitution and take the MPRE within one year. The order took effect Sept. 3, 2004.

The State Bar Court found that Collins committed misconduct in two cases. She associated into a probate matter for a suspended attorney, but the representation lasted only about six weeks. During that time, she filed a variety of documents with the court without conducting suitable inquiries as to whether the information they contained was true. Had she done so, she would have discovered additional properties in the estate and that their property taxes were delinquent.

The bar court found that she committed acts of moral turpitude and performed legal services with gross negligence.

In the second case, Collins was hired by a client to answer a complaint filed against the client and her son by their insurance company. She never filed an answer and judgment was entered against her client’s son.

She did not respond to three phone calls or a letter from the insurance company’s attorney.

When the client inquired about the judgment, Collins’ office said she had not filed the answer because the client owed her $750. At no time did Collins tell the client she needed more money to file an answer. She also did not return her

client’s phone calls or answer a letter.

The court found that Collins failed to perform legal services competently, keep a client reasonably informed about developments in her case or refund unearned fees.
