Lawyer Risks Losing License for Advising Clients to Break Into Home
California lawyer, Michael T. Pines, is in hot water with the State Bar of California for encouraging clients to take the law into their own hands.
Many of Pines’ former clients are leading the charge against him, as they are unhappy with the legal consequences they faced after following his advice. One couple were told by Pines to sneak into their home that had been forclosed upon and reclaim it as their own.
The couple was evicted from the home, and the incident caused a real estate agency who bought the home to lose $200,000. Pines instructed another client to ignore a judge’s ruling to foreclose on his home.
