Sonoma County lawyer Steven Pabros is set to serve a 30-day suspension from practicing law for failing to disclose that his client was dead for more than a year while he litigated his case.
According to a stipulated set of facts filed with the State Bar Court of California, Pabros, of Windsor, was litigating a dispute with a tenant on appeal on behalf of Alfeo Mattei when his client died in January 2016. Pabros, however, continued to litigate the case for more than a year after Mattei’s death without informing the court and opposing counsel. Even then, it was only after the case had been remanded and was headed for trial.
