ANDREW J. DAVIS JR. [#24255], 77, of West Covina was suspended for two years, stayed, placed on three years of probation and was ordered to comply with rule 955 and prove his rehabilitation. The order took effect June 29, 2006.Davis stipulated to two acts of misconduct that resulted from his office manager's dishonesty.He maintained his primary office in Los Angeles and had a second office in Stockton. His office manager was a trusted employee, but was not a signator to the office trust account. Shortly after the office manager left for Cambodia, Davis received notification from his bank that two checks, for $2,500 each, had bounced. Davis had kept pre-signed trust account checks in a secured drawer for emergencies.Davis closed the account immediately and demanded an explanation from the office manager, whom he reported to police. The man deposited $6,000 into Davis' account and sent him a copy of the deposit slip with a note reading, "May God bless you."Davis subsequently closed the Stockton office.He stipulated that he failed to perform legal services competently by not supervising his employee and also failed to maintain client funds in trust.Davis was disciplined in 2004 for similar misconduct, also resulting from his bookkeeper's dishonesty.In mitigation, he demonstrated remorse.
