FARI BARI NEJADPOUR [#216925], 50, of Los Angeles was suspended for three years, stayed, placed on four years of probation with an actual two-year suspension and until he proves his rehabilitation, and he was ordered to comply with rule 9.20 of the California Rules of Court. The order took effect Dec. 19, 2012.Nejadpour stipulated to four counts of misconduct in two matters.A couple paid him an advance fee for legal work related to adoption of their foster children. Shortly after Nejadpour was hired, the husband died and the wife hired Nejadpour for an additional $10,000 to probate the estate. California court rules prohibit lawyers from accepting advance fees in a probate matter until approved by the court. Although Nejadpour did a little work, he did nothing to advance the probate and it could not be completed. The wife hired a new lawyer, who asked Nejadpour to refund the advance fee, which he did not do for nearly two years. The new lawyer completed the probate and the court expressly denied Nejadpour’s $10,000 fee.He stipulated that he collected an illegal fee and failed to refund advance fees or perform legal services with competence.In the second matter, Nejadpour sued someone in 2007 for personal injuries arising from an alleged physical altercation at a courthouse. During the 2010 trial, Nejadpour said he had never admitted to making misrepresentations in court. However, in a 2009 stipulation with the State Bar, he admitted committing three acts of moral turpitude by concealing material facts in a dissolution from the parties and from the superior court overseeing the dissolution. The judge found for the defendant in the personal injury matter, and found that Nejadpour had made misrepresentations. He stipulated that his conduct involved moral turpitude.In the 2009 stipulation, Nejadpour concealed facts about the nature of his relationship with the realty company which was owned by his wife.In mitigation, he cooperated with the bar by entering into a stipulation.
