Pool was accused of 126 acts of misconduct in relation to loan modifications. She has to pay back over $300,000 plus interest to dozens of clients.

The complaints against Pool began in 2015, according to the State Bar, which manages the admission of lawyers to the legal practice and hands down discipline appropriate to the misconduct. They began an investigation into the allegations of professional misconduct against Pool.

The allegations claimed she collected fees before completing services for clients, failing to refund unearned money and failing to “competently perform legal services,” according to State Bar spokesman Jonah Lamb. He also explained that she was accused of failing to pay court-ordered sanctions in the thousands of dollars as well as failing to report the sanctions to the bar and allowing an employee to give legal advice to a client.

She did not show up at a January hearing to dispute the claims so the State Bar proceeded with the steps to disbar her. When an attorney does not participate in a California State Bar disciplinary proceeding when given adequate notice and opportunity, the State Bar invokes Rule 5.85, the procedure for the bar to recommend disbarment of the attorney.



Pool was admitted to the State Bar in 2002 and the U.S. District Court, Central and Southern Districts of California in 2003. Profiles on several online sites state that she went to law school at Whittier College School of Law in 2000 and Arizona State University in 1996.
