  2. DAN E. KORENBERG
  3. JORGE EDUARDO PORTUGAL LEON

 

KENNETH H. JACOBSON [#66301], 63, of The Woodlands, Tex., was summarily disbarred Oct. 9, 2009, and was ordered to comply with rule 9.20 of the California Rules of Court.Jacobson was convicted of aiding and abetting mail fraud. Because the conviction was a felony involving moral turpitude, it met the requirements for summary disbarment.

DAN E. KORENBERG [#71536], 61, of Sherman Oaks was summarily disbarred Oct. 9, 2009, and was ordered to comply with rule 9.20 of the California Rules of Court. Korenberg was convicted of visa fraud and conspiracy to commit immigration fraud.

JORGE EDUARDO PORTUGAL LEON [#117055], 66, of San Francisco was disbarred Oct. 17, 2009, and was ordered to comply with rule 9.20. Portugal Leon failed to comply with an earlier rule 9.20 requirement that was part of a 2008 disciplinary order. He submitted a defective compliance declaration to the State Bar but never submitted a corrected version. Failure to comply with the rule is grounds for disbarment. He also did not submit two quarterly probation reports or evidence of mental health treatment. In the underlying matter, the State Bar Court found that Portugal Leon committed misconduct in 13 client matters, including failure to perform legal services competently, communicate with clients or refund unearned fees. He did not participate in the disbarment proceedings and his default was entered.
