On Friday, July 14, 2023, the Supreme Court of California disbarred attorney Mansour Sig Haddad due to misconduct related to a hit-and-run incident causing property damage.

The case is entitled “In the Matter of Mansour Sig Haddad,” with case no. S279848.

Haddad was convicted on October 7, 2021, in the California Superior Court in San Luis Obispo County on misdemeanor charges. The State Bar Court of California forwarded the records of his conviction to the Supreme Court. The transmittal of these records followed the provisions of Business and Professions Code sections 6101-6102 and California Rules of Court. The Office of Chief Trial Counsel was responsible for the submission, which aimed to apprise the State Bar Court of Haddad’s conviction and prompted evaluation for potential disciplinary action. According to the documents,

Haddad’s conviction included violations of Vehicle Code sections 23152(a) and 23152(b), pertaining to driving under the influence of alcohol with admitted enhancements. Additionally, Haddad was found guilty of a violation of Vehicle Code section 20002(a), involving a hit and run with property damage. The Office of Chief Trial Counsel then submitted a certified copy of the case summary, complaint, plea of guilty, waiver of rights, orders related to the DUI charges, and the order of probation as part of the transmittal.

Haddad responded to the notice of hearing on conviction. In his reply, Haddad maintained that his convictions did not encompass moral turpitude, were unrelated to his legal practice, and did not have an adverse impact on his moral character. He contested the existence of a connection between his convictions and any potential disciplinary measures.

Despite Haddad’s assertions, the Supreme Court of California decided to disbar the former because of his aforementioned misconduct.

The Disposition states:

“The court orders that Mansour Sig Haddad (Respondent), State Bar Number 172061, is disbarred from the practice of law in California and that Respondent’s name is stricken from the roll of attorneys.”

Before his disbarment, Mr. Haddad practiced in San Luis Obispo, California, and held a valid license in the state. His info can be found on avvo.com.
