November 11, 2017
Ellis Park [#214303], 54, of Tustin, was disbarred Nov. 11, 2017, and ordered to notify his clients of the discipline, make restitution and perform other obligations under rule 9.20 of the California Rules of Court. The State Bar Court found that Park committed an act involving moral turpitude and dishonesty by intentionally misappropriating $14,000 of a client’s funds in a civil forfeiture action. He failed to notify the client promptly of the receipt of funds and failed to render appropriate accounts to the client. He failed to maintain client funds in a trust account. In aggravation, he committed multiple acts of misconduct that caused significant harm to the client by depriving him of funds, ignoring requests regarding the status of the money and forcing the client to contact opposing counsel to discover what had happened. Park stalled and filibustered the State Bar Court proceeding and showed no desire to defend the matter on its merits, demonstrating his indifference toward rectification or atonement for the consequences of his misconduct. He has failed to make restitution of $14,112.64 to the client. In mitigation, Park had 13 years of discipline-free conduct.
