February 26, 1998
WILLIAM CHARLES KENNEDY [#76992], 56, of Riverside was suspended for two years, stayed, placed on two years of probation and was ordered to take the MPRE within one year. The order took effect Feb. 26, 1998.Kennedy failed to properly supervise his former office manager in disbursing settlement funds and failed to properly review checks presented to him for signature. As a result, there were three overdrafts on his client trust account. Kennedy corrected the problem as soon as he became aware of it. In mitigation, he has no record of prior discipline and no clients were harmed because the bank issued the funds in question and Kennedy redeposited them. An urgent family problem at the time diverted his attention from his law practice.
