  1. Anyone heard of Case No. A-13-688780-C, Chawla v. Karen Ross Esq? Apparantley its a legal malpractice/breach of fiduciary duty suit where Chawla was Karen Ross' client in a transaction deal. After everything was done and over, client finds out that Ross was sleeping with opposing counsel in that transaction deal and failed to follow through on perfecting liens. Interestingly enough Karen Ross has been personally sued 3 other times in the last two years, one of them being her former staff suing her for unpaid wages and so forth. Yikes! Female version of Kutner..

    1. Karen Ross is a nightmare as an opposing counsel and nightmare as your counsel. Never dreamed that my belief that she was screwing both of us over at the same time might be true.

    2. Check out the counter-claim in A-15-715126-C. CRAZY

    3. Oh, Lordy. Haven't thought about Karen for years, but does it surprise me that she sued her baby-daddy in district court? It does not.

    4. On that A-15-715126-C case word on the street is that she had a fiancee (Grassi, the Deft) who she talked into "investing" in her practince to the tune of $800k in a joint bank account. A year or so later she breaks up with him over text message and takes a straight shot to the bank account and withdraws all the funds...then files an injunction against him saying the money was a gift! Ay carumba...gives the same "Cold Hard Bitch" a whole new meaning

    5. From the minutes in the Chawla case: "COURT FINDS that allegations contained in Plaintiffs' complaint shall not be deemed scandalous merely because the facts therein may paint Defendant in negative light"

    6. 11:22-- I heard the same story. KR liked to play fast and loose with other people's money (typical stripper behavior).

    7. @11:51 - I don't know anything about that, and that seems kind of defamatory. Got a source to back that up?

    8. Never heard of her so I looked her up. Attractive but a Whittier Law grad. Res Ipsa Loquitur. Seems like Cooley and Whittier have a bit of a corner on the market of problem attorneys although a few good ones get through.

    9. @12:24, this is 11:22, I can confirm she was in fact a stripper before college/law school. She has admitted this to a few people that she used to be friends with..and i say "used to be" because she of course screwed them over too over money or what have you

    10. I am suspicious of this thread. Is this just the same person having an staged conversation with themselves because they have some beef with Karen Ross?

      Delete
    11. 12:24 here. Not talking about the stripper part, just the "fast and loose" bit. I don't hold dancing against anyone, even Karen (I hold being an irresponsible bitch against her, but not dancing). Hell, one of the best damn lawyers I know was a dancer before and during law school.

    12. @1:08,

      No. But then, there's not much I can say to prove it, since that response is also what a crazy Terri Mosley Cat lady poster would make if he/she were carrying on a conversation all by themselves.
      -12:24/1:10

    13. 11:51 here (not 1:14 or 12:57)... Yes the stripper part is real and has been confirmed from KR's own lips. The money part is the compilation of the litigation in which she is a party along with clients that she has raped, pillaged and then left out in the cold. Have a client come to you asking you to clean up one of her messes, and you will understand.

    14. 12:57 here, I think the multiple amount of lawsuits against Karen Ross by different unrelated people in the last few years is a decent amount of proof of what is being said in this thread has some truth and credibility in it. Obviously from the lawsuits there are a few people who have been with Karen, so there is no need for one person to be taking on multiple identities to have a pretend conversation.

    15. Crazy in the head = crazy in bed. She is lawyer hit for sure.

    16. 8:40...please elaborate...are you speaking from personal experience? eyewitness accounts? details please!

  2. I am a little surprised that Navarro ruled against the UNLV grad student. It sounds like the right decision, though, and the Ninth Circuit affirmed.

    1. Another in a long line of beatdowns and findings of frivolous and vexatious lawsuits. Someone even put some interesting documents on blast: https://www.scribd.com/user/231538669/Jason-Bach

    2. So that UNLV Professor appears to have taken it personally as against Mr. Bach.

  3. I just got the Nevada Lawyer for this month and 6 of the 7 attorneys that had suspensions issued had the majority of their suspensions stayed with conditions.
    Alda Anderson suspended 18 months all of it stayed (taking trust funds for personal expenses);
    Brian Boggess two year suspension all but 3 months stayed with conditions for non-intentional issues with his trust account;
    both Haines & Krieger three years suspension ALL stayed and they just have to tell clients that hire both their law firm and their real estate brokerage of a possible conflict of interest;
    Jonathan Goldsmith two year suspension, all but 9 months stayed for what appears to be substance abuse issues causing lack of oversight at his firm;
    Karlon Kidder one year suspension with 9 months stayed for what appears to be office mismanagement;
    Another attorney (Lombino) suspended for 6 months without any stay; and
    Marina Kolias makes her second debut with another suspension, this time for 5 more years (on top of her already issued suspension of, I believe, 5 years back in Oct 2015).


    When did the State Bar start doing stayed suspensions with conditions (similar to probation) as opposed to actual suspensions (similar to jail time) ?

    1. Whoops - 6 of the 8 attorneys.

    2. I believe that when an attorney steals from his/her trust account and/or clients, they should be disbarred and criminally prosecuted. It is crazy that in our society people are being incarcerated for stealing food from 7-11, while attorneys get away with things much more serious

      Delete
    3. Curiously missing was a repeat offender who has been suspended for two years (stayed for 6 months) for dipping into his client trust account.

      Does anyone know the details of Karlon Kidder's proceedings?

      "I never stopped to think of it before, but you know–a police–man will jest stand there an let a banker rob a farmer, or a finace man rob a workin man. But if a farmer robs a banker–you wood have a hole dern army of cops out a shooting at him. Robbery is a chapter in etiquette." -Woodie Guthrie

  4. Weren't there a lot of bar complaints against Haines and Krieger? This Order only deals with a conflict of interest from a realtor practice they had. Wonder who represented Haines and Krieger?

    1. Dennis Kennedy represented H&K. And this Order deals with all allegations and complaints against H&K.

  5. Good result by Dennis Kennedy presumably. Must have cost them a lot of $$$$.

    1. How much do you want to bet that H&K are big b/doners in town and so is Dennis Kennedy himself? This town is as transparent as the bras and panties on the strip...

    2. Those cheap bastards don't contribute to anyone. They did pay Kennedy a good amount. That was a good deal considering it was a 54 page complaint. They should have been suspended.

  6. Haines and Krieger seem to have the Teflon effect when it comes to problems with the Bar as the Bar have a problem taking licenses away because of the poor people they screwed. I think the Bar needs to be investigated for not acting and representing the unsuspecting public who have used this firm. I read that they are on a 3 year stayed suspension and I know they will mess up before then. Its just a matter of time as old habits die hard.

    1. Sorry you were one of the consumers that they screwed. The deal was made a long time ago in the middle of a very long hearing. Old news.
