“We lost.”  For not taking action sooner against the LA lawyer, the state bar apologizes

One of the most well-known lawyers in Los Angeles was Thomas Girardi. He and his now-divorced wife Erika, who is the star of the reality TV program “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills,” apparently enjoyed luxurious lives. Girardi is currently blacklisted, has declared bankruptcy, and is under investigation by the federal government for illegally stealing over $18 million from investors. He is also charged with damaging the State Bar of California Board of Trustees with his previously significant influence.

As the Board of Trustees and management teams of the State Bar of California, respectively, we sincerely apologize on behalf of the State Bar to the citizens of California for the State Bar’s historical failure to keep former attorney Thomas Girardi responsible for his customers, despite receiving over 200 complaints above 40 years.

As an organization, we forgot to analyze and identify potential customer money mismanagement, ignored handling of financial conflicts, and infrequently discovered patterns of complaints. We take accountability for continuing to implement the necessary adjustments to earn back your trust in the State Bar and for remaining committed to our goal of supporting the public by holding lawyers responsible for their client’s needs.
