June 17, 2016

DALE IRVING GUSTIN [#76642], 78, of Paso Robles, was suspended from the practice of law for six months, continuing until he pays more than $8,000 in court-ordered sanctions for engaging in meritless litigation. He was placed on probation for three years. The order took effect June 17, 2016.

He has prior records of discipline dating from 1995, when he received a stayed suspension and probation for five ethical violations in two client matters. In 2003 Gustin was privately reproved with conditions for committing two ethical violations in a single client matter. After the current case was filed, a fourth case arose in which Gustin was charged with three counts of misconduct in two client matters. He failed to report the sanctions to the State Bar.

The State Bar hearing judge found four factors in aggravation, including multiple acts of misconduct, significant harm to the administration of justice and a showing by Gustin of indifference and lack of insight during his bar court trial.
