IN RE: PETITION TO SIGN IN THE ROLL OF ATTORNEYS MICHAEL A. MEDADO, Petitioner.

RESOLUTION

SERENO, C.J.:

We resolve the instant Petition to Sign in the Roll of Attorneys filed by petitioner Michael A. Medado
(Medado).

Medado graduated from the University of the Philippines with the degree of Bachelor of Laws in 19791
and passed the same years bar examinations with a general weighted average of 82.7.2 cral aw vi rt ual aw l i brary

On 7 May 1980, he took the Attorneys Oath at the Philippine International Convention Center (PICC)
together with the successful bar examinees.3 He was scheduled to sign in the Roll of Attorneys on 13 May
1980,4 but he failed to do so on his scheduled date, allegedly because he had misplaced the Notice to
Sign the Roll of Attorneys5 given by the Bar Office when he went home to his province for a vacation.6 cral aw vi rt ual aw l i brary

Several years later, while rummaging through his old college files, Medado found the Notice to Sign the
Roll of Attorneys. It was then that he realized that he had not signed in the roll, and that what he had
signed at the entrance of the PICC was probably just an attendance record.7 cral aw vi rtual aw l i brary

By the time Medado found the notice, he was already working. He stated that he was mainly doing
corporate and taxation work, and that he was not actively involved in litigation practice. Thus, he
operated under the mistaken belief [that] since he ha[d] already taken the oath, the signing of the Roll
of Attorneys was not as urgent, nor as crucial to his status as a lawyer;8 and the matter of signing in
DebtKollect Company, Inc. the Roll of Attorneys lost its urgency and compulsion, and was subsequently forgotten.9 cral aw vi rt ual aw l i brary

In 2005, when Medado attended Mandatory Continuing Legal Education (MCLE) seminars, he was
required to provide his roll number in order for his MCLE compliances to be credited.10 Not having signed
in the Roll of Attorneys, he was unable to provide his roll number.

About seven years later, or on 6 February 2012, Medado filed the instant Petition, praying that he be
allowed to sign in the Roll of Attorneys.11 cral aw vi rt ual aw l i brary

The Office of the Bar Confidant (OBC) conducted a clarificatory conference on the matter on 21
September 201212 and submitted a Report and Recommendation to this Court on 4 February 2013.13
The OBC recommended that the instant petition be denied for petitioners gross negligence, gross
misconduct and utter lack of merit.14 It explained that, based on his answers during the clarificatory
conference, petitioner could offer no valid justification for his negligence in signing in the Roll of
Attorneys.15cralaw vi rt ual aw l i brary

After a judicious review of the records, we grant Medados prayer in the instant petition, subject to the
payment of a fine and the imposition of a penalty equivalent to suspension from the practice of law.
ChanRobles Intellectual Property
At the outset, we note that not allowing Medado to sign in the Roll of Attorneys would be akin to
Division imposing upon him the ultimate penalty of disbarment, a penalty that we have reserved for the most
serious ethical transgressions of members of the Bar.

In this case, the records do not show that this action is warranted.

For one, petitioner demonstrated good faith and good moral character when he finally filed the instant
Petition to Sign in the Roll of Attorneys. We note that it was not a third party who called this Courts

attention to petitioners omission; rather, it was Medado himself who acknowledged his own lapse, albeit
after the passage of more than 30 years. When asked by the Bar Confidant why it took him this long to
file the instant petition, Medado very candidly replied: chanrobl es vi rt ua1aw 1i brary

Mahirap hong i-explain yan pero, yun bang at the time, what can you say? Takot ka kung
anong mangyayari sa yo, you dont know whats gonna happen. At the same time, its a
combination of apprehension and anxiety of whats gonna happen. And, finally its the right
thing to do. I have to come here sign the roll and take the oath as necessary.16

For another, petitioner has not been subject to any action for disqualification from the practice of law,17
which is more than what we can say of other individuals who were successfully admitted as members of
the Philippine Bar. For this Court, this fact demonstrates that petitioner strove to adhere to the strict
requirements of the ethics of the profession, and that he has prima facie shown that he possesses the
character required to be a member of the Philippine Bar.

Finally, Medado appears to have been a competent and able legal practitioner, having held various
positions at the Laurel Law Office,18 Petron, Petrophil Corporation, the Philippine National Oil Company,
and the Energy Development Corporation.19 cral aw vi rt ual aw l i brary

All these demonstrate Medados worth to become a full-fledged member of the Philippine Bar. While the
practice of law is not a right but a privilege,20 this Court will not unwarrantedly withhold this privilege
from individuals who have shown mental fitness and moral fiber to withstand the rigors of the profession.

That said, however, we cannot fully exculpate petitioner Medado from all liability for his years of inaction.

Petitioner has been engaged in the practice of law since 1980, a period spanning more than 30 years,
without having signed in the Roll of Attorneys.21 He justifies this behavior by characterizing his acts as
September-2013 Jurisprudence neither willful nor intentional but based on a mistaken belief and an honest error of judgment.22 cral aw vi rt ual aw l i brary

We disagree.

A.C. No. 9149, September 04, 2013 - JULIAN While an honest mistake of fact could be used to excuse a person from the legal consequences of his
