On Thursday, August 31, 2023, the Supreme Court of California issued a final disciplinary order against attorney Jackie P. Ferrari. Ferrari was disbarred from practicing law in California and her name was stricken from the roll of attorneys.
The case is entitled “In the Matter of Jackie P. Ferrari,” with case no. S280899.
According to a decision and order of involuntary inactive enrollment,
The case involves Ferrari’s felony conviction on June 24, 2019, for violating 21 U.S.C section 841(a)(1), (b)(1)(c) (knowingly and intentionally distributing Schedule II controlled substance oxycodone). The conviction became final on April 14, 2022.
The State Bar Court properly served Ferrari with a Notice of Hearing on Conviction on September 30, 2022. Although Ferrari had actual notice of the proceeding, she did not file a response. Her default was entered on December 29, 2022.
