Attorney Juan Martinez Consents to Disbarment
July 17, 2020 – Phoenix – The Presiding Disciplinary Judge of the Arizona Supreme Court has issued an order accepting a consent to disbarment for Juan Martinez.
Martinez filed a consent to disbarment in the pending discipline case of In re: Juan Martinez, PDJ 2019-9008. The Presiding Disciplinary Judge accepted his consent and issued an order disbarring him, effective immediately. This judgment of disbarment effectively ends the pending discipline case against him.
Juan Martinez filed the consent to disbarment pursuant to Rule 57, Ariz. R. Sup. Ct., which allows him to consent to disbarment without making any admission of misconduct; rather he confirms that he no longer wants to defend against the charges.
The State Bar believes this is a just outcome and appreciates the time and effort of both the State Bar lawyers and staff who litigated this case, particularly Senior Bar Counsel Craig Henley and Staff Bar Counsel Stacy Shuman, as well as the witnesses involved in the underlying charges.
