Now-Disbarred Lawyer Agrees To Cough Up $32K+ In Restitution For Pocketing Upfront Fees, Then Failing Provide Services In Nine Loan Mod-Related Cases

From the California Bar Journal (August 2012):

  • Kent C. Wilson [#58652], 66, of San Diego was disbarred June 16, 2012, and was ordered to make restitution and comply with rule 9.20 of the California Rules of Court.

    Wilson stipulated to 30 counts of misconduct in nine cases. Most of the cases involved loan modifications or potential lawsuits against lenders. He did not do the work he was hired to do, closed his office without notifying his clients and did not account for or refund their unearned fees.
  • In mitigation, Wilson has no prior discipline record, cooperated with the bar and tried to resign from practice when he was overwhelmed by work. He agreed to make restitution totaling $32,600.
