Client State Bar Complaint

(Based on The State Bar of California Standing Committee on Professional Responsibility and Conduct Formal Opinion No. 2012-185.)

An attorney is prohibited from seeking a client’s written or oral agreement not to file a State Bar complaint against that attorney. (Bus. and Prof. Code, § 6090.5; In re McCarthy (Review Dept. 2002) 4 Cal. State Bar Ct. Rptr. 364; In re Brockway (Review Dept. 2006) 4 Cal. State Bar Ct. Rptr. 944.)

“A member shall not be a party to or participate in offering or making an agreement which precludes the reporting of a violation” of the Rules of Professional Conduct. (Rules of Prof. Conduct, Rule 1-500(B).)

Legal Standard

“It is cause for suspension, disbarment, or other discipline for any licensee, whether as a party or as an attorney for a party, to agree or seek agreement, that: (1) The professional misconduct or the terms of a settlement of a claim for professional misconduct shall not be reported to the State Bar. (2) The plaintiff shall withdraw a disciplinary complaint or shall not cooperate with the investigation or prosecution conducted by the State Bar. (3) The record of any civil action for professional misconduct shall be sealed from review by the State Bar.” (Bus. and Prof. Code, § 6090.5(a).)

Disciplinary proceedings under the prior version of section 6090.5 were more lenient concerning offers to settle. (In Matter of Fonte (Review Dept. 1994) 2 Cal. State Bar Ct. Rptr. 752.) Based upon legislative intent as reflected the 1996 amendment, the court concluded that section 6090.5 must be broadly interpreted as prohibiting attorneys from seeking to conceal from the State Bar unethical conduct through a written or oral client agreement. (In the Matter of Blum (Review Dept. 2002) 4 Cal. State Bar Ct. Rptr. 403, 413.)
