California State Bar Court Orders Attorney to Stop Practicing Law

Ignoring California law has become very costly for a man who has only been practicing law in California for four years.

Stephen Siringoringo, of the Siringoringo Law Firm, was ordered by the California State Bar Court on July 29 to stop practicing law. He was classified as “ineligible to practice law” by the court because he took advance fees from clients to do mortgage modification work for them. Taking  advance fees has been illegal since 2009 and was a law sought and passed as Senate Bill 94 (SB94) by former California Attorney Edmund G. Brown, now the state’s governor.

Siringoringo’s law firm found clients by advertising in Southern California. According to judge Richard Honn, the firm obtained over 4,300 loan modifications. Some of the testimony heard by Judge Honn included declarations from 14 forms clients of the Siringoringo Law Firm. The upfront fees charged ranged from $3,500 to $8,490 according to the state bar’s investigation.
