KIRSTEN ANDELMAN [#236347], 40, of Poway, was suspended from the practice of law for 30 days and ordered to take the MPRE. She was also placed on one year of probation and faces a one-year suspension if she does not comply with the terms of her disciplinary probation. The order took effect Dec. 25, 2014. Andelman stipulated that she repeatedly violated court orders in connection with a divorce case she handled. In March 2012, a superior court judge ordered Andelman to prepare and file an order within 45 days. She failed to do so. Andelman did not receive notice that a subsequent hearing was continued and did not show up for it, leading the court to propose sanctions and order her to appear. Andelman appeared by phone at the next hearing where the court relieved her as counsel of record. After another missed hearing, the court found she repeatedly violated court orders and sanctioned her by requiring she perform 30 hours of nonlegal community service. In mitigation, she entered into a pretrial stipulation with the State Bar.
