JAMES J. SCHOLLIAN
Bar No. 022015; File Nos. 14-2970, 14-3147, 15-
PDJ No. 2015-9084
By the presiding disciplinary judge’s March 4,
2016, judgment and order, James J. Schollian,
Mesa, Ariz., was disbarred, effective Feb. 10,
2016. Mr. Schollian was ordered to pay a
$97,458.23 judgment and restitution to two
clients totaling $10,600. He also was assessed
$2,027.15 for the costs and expenses of the disciplinary proceeding.
Mr. Schollian was the managing attorney for
the Perel Law Firm when a client hired him to
represent her son on a DUI charge. The firm
took her money but Mr. Schollian failed to provide any services.
Mr. Schollian represented a bankruptcy client
for a flat fee of $10,000. He failed to file motions
to address two second mortgages, one on the
client’s principal residence and one on a rental
property. The client did not learn of Mr. Schollian’s neglect until he hired another attorney.
In another bankruptcy case, Mr. Schollian
violated the court’s receivership order and was
held jointly and severally liable to the receiver and
Meridian Bank for $97,458.23.
Mr. Schollian failed to notify bankruptcy
clients about his pending four-year suspension
resulting from other discipline proceedings. Several bankruptcy judges set order to show cause
hearings, but Mr. Schollian failed to appear at
most of them.
During these disciplinary proceedings, Mr.
Schollian failed to: participate in a scheduled settlement conference; provide the State Bar with a
disclosure statement; provide the State Bar with
any hearing exhibits; and participate in preparing
a joint prehearing statement. The State Bar filed a
motion for sanctions. The presiding disciplinary
judge granted it, struck Mr. Schollian’s answer,
and reset the merits hearing to an aggravation/
mitigation hearing. Mr. Schollian failed to appear
Aggravating factors were: prior disciplinary
offenses, a pattern of misconduct, multiple offenses, bad faith obstruction of the disciplinary
process, refusal to acknowledge wrongful nature
of his conduct, and substantial experience in the
practice of law. There were no mitigating factors.
