In re Jenkins
Kansas Supreme Court
907 P.2d 825 (1995)
Attorney Howard Jenkins II (defendant) represented Gary Brooks in a divorce action. After trial, the court ordered that Brooks’s ex-wife deliver to Brooks certain items of personal property. Brooks’s ex-wife delivered certain items to Jenkins, but Jenkins did not inspect, inventory, or provide a receipt for the items. The items were placed in Jenkins’s wife’s garage. Jenkins claimed he was in the process of getting divorced and did not have access to his wife’s garage at the time. Some items of property were delivered to Brooks, but other items were not returned. Brooks had difficulty communicating with Jenkins and getting responses to his inquiries about his property. Brooks filed a complaint with the Office of the Disciplinary Administrator. After a hearing, a panel of the Kansas Board for Discipline of Attorneys found that Jenkins had violated Kansas Rule of Professional Conduct (RPC) 1.15 and recommended that Jenkins be required to negotiate with Brooks to resolve any dispute about the return of property and be indefinitely suspended from the practice of law.
