California Bar Journal Discipline Summaries

Summaries from the California Bar Journal are based on discipline orders but are not the official records. Not all discipline actions have associated CBJ summaries. Copies of official attorney discipline records are available upon request. September 10, 2010 JAMIE LEIGH HARLEY [#112320], 53, of San Jose was suspended for two years, stayed, placed on two years of probation with a six-month actual suspension and until she makes restitution, and she was ordered to take the MPRE and comply with rule 9.20 of the California Rules of Court. If the actual suspension exceeds two years, she must prove her rehabilitation. The order took effect Sept. 10, 2010. Harley also was placed on interim suspension Sept. 10 as a result of federal convictions on five counts of money laundering. The State Bar Court found that Harley, who also is known as Jamie Harmon, committed nine acts of misconduct in six matters. A former deputy district attorney, Harley handled a busy criminal law practice that often included 100 to 200 open files at a time. The court’s review department found her misconduct primarily involved mismanagement of her practice and did not involve dishonesty. She gave incorrect advice about the prison term one client would receive under a plea agreement and provided incorrect information about the consequences of a plea in a serious sex offense case. She forgot about one client’s traffic trial and did not appear, and in three matters, she did not properly respond to the clients’ requests for information, for their files or for refunds of their fees. In mitigation, Harmon practiced for nearly two decades with no discipline and cooperated with the bar’s investigation.
