December 30, 2017
Joseph Frieden Hanan [#229936], 42, of Los Angeles, was disbarred effective Dec. 30, 2017, and ordered to notify his clients of the discipline and perform other obligations under rule 9.20 of the California Rules of Court. The State Bar Court found that Hanan did not participate in a State Bar disciplinary proceeding, his default was entered and the factual allegations against him were deemed admitted. The allegations included Hanan’s failure to file a declaration of compliance with conditions imposed in connection with a two-year probation. That 2016 discipline followed Hanan’s stipulation that he had failed to comply with certain specified conditions attached to an earlier private reproval and that he had committed an act involving moral turpitude, dishonesty or corruption by making knowingly false representations regarding his compliance with the private reproval conditions. The 2014 reproval arose after Hanan failed to respond to numerous reasonable status inquiries from a client and failed to cooperate in a disciplinary investigation.
