December 10, 2015

JEFFREY ALAN DICKSTEIN [#70638], 69, of Tulsa, Okla., was suspended from the practice of law for 30 days and ordered to take the MPRE. He was also placed on two years’ probation and faces a one-year suspension if he does not comply with the terms of his disciplinary probation. The order took effect Dec. 10, 2015.

A State Bar Court hearing judge recommended Dickstein receive a 30-day suspension based on his 2010 misdemeanor contempt conviction in a federal district court. The Office of Chief Trial Counsel appealed, urging a six-month suspension. A three-judge review panel affirmed the hearing judge’s culpability finding, but found mitigating and aggravating circumstances surrounding his misconduct.

In April 2010, Dickstein filed a motion to withdraw as counsel for clients in a trial for conspiracy to commit money laundering, tax evasion and wire fraud on the grounds that they failed to pay his fees. The court denied his motion to withdraw because it violated a standing order that he continue to represent the clients even if the clients could not pay his fees. That November, he was found in contempt after the court found he sought to withdraw from the case for nonpayment of fees, which the court’s order was aimed at preventing.

In mitigation, Dickstein had no prior record of discipline at the time of his misconduct.
