ALAN PERRY THOMAS [#60096], 53, of Glendale was suspended for five years, stayed, placed on five years of probation with an actual four-year suspension, and was ordered to take the MPRE. Credit will be given for an interim suspension which began April 25, 1997. If the suspension exceeds two years, he must prove his rehabilitation. The order took effect July 3, 1999.Thomas pleaded no contest to three counts of insurance fraud in 1996 as a result of spending four years in business with another attorney and three non-lawyers who engaged in soliciting accident victims and receiving fraudulent settlements.He allowed his name to be used by another lawyer, allowed others to process insurance claims under his name, signed papers in cases he didn't handle, and had no access to general and trust accounts bearing his name. A non-lawyer brought in cases, settled them, and Thomas made the payments. The non-lawyer took 60 percent.Thomas has cooperated with several law enforcement agencies in the investigation and prosecution of criminals involved in capping, insurance fraud, extortion and related violent crimes. He has potentially placed himself and his family in danger. He initially became involved in the shady law practice because of overwork, stress and seizures that clouded his judgment.
