Clarke Wittstruck failed on multiple occasions to maintain, manage, and handle client funds.  Wittstruck neglected client matters and communications, which caused his clients to suffer legal consequences, such as arrest.  He changed the handling of his firm, and in the transition period, operated without support staff and accepted more work than he was able to handle.  Wittstruck has been previously disciplined for other instances.  The State Bar hearing committee suspended Wittstruck’s law license for five years.
