JON RANDOLPH KNISS [#141454], 55, of Santa Fe, N.M., was suspended for three years, stayed, placed on three years of probation with an actual one-year suspension and until he proves his rehabilitation and he was ordered to take the MPRE and comply with rule 9.20 of the California Rules of Court. The order took effect July 6, 2011.

Kniss was terminated from the State Bar’s Alternative Discipline Program, where he was accepted after demonstrating a connection between his misconduct and his mental health issues. As a result, he received a harsher discipline than would have been imposed had he completed the program.

Kniss stipulated to 20 counts of misconduct in nine cases.

In a medical malpractice claim, for example, in which he represented a minor on a contingency fee basis, he missed hearings, didn’t pay sanctions, didn’t respond to or oppose motions and didn’t tell the client the case was dismissed or that he unsuccessfully appealed the dismissal.

He substituted in to a personal injury case, received a $6,500 settlement on behalf of his client but never paid the client her portion of the funds. In other cases, he didn’t do the work he was hired for: he did not comply with discovery, make court appearances or protect the statute of limitations, and he abandoned some clients.

Kniss was privately reprove in 2000 and in 2010 was suspended after a court awarded a default judgment against his client for more than $4.7 million plus $215,000 in punitive damages. Kniss didn’t notify the client, who eventually won a malpractice judgment against Kniss for $677,254. The client had to spend another $120,000 in legal fees to settle the case.

The State Bar Court found that Kniss’s actions demonstrated a pattern of misconduct and that he harmed the administration of justice.

As a predator, Kniss still has not received his just rewards for his despicable actions that he has harmed clients for a great many years. Report him to the State Bar. Sue him if you have a case. Show this predator that folk will not allow him to continue to act maliciously with impunity.

Jon R. Kniss was suspended from the Wyoming Bar on December 8, 1993 for failure to provide his annual reports of continuing legal education and his membership was terminated and filed by the Wyoming Supreme Court on June 6, 2001. HE IS NO LONGER AN ATTORNEY IN WYOMING....
Each attorney is required to attend 15 hours per year of continuing legal education seminars, webinars, etc. They have so much time after the to complete these requirements or to show cause as to why they weren’t able to do so. If they don’t reply within those times, as I stated in my e-mail, they are then terminated from the Wyoming State Bar.
The attorney would have to start over as if he were never admitted to the Bar – submit documents (law school information, etc) to the Wyoming State Bar Admissions Director who in turn works with the Board of Bar Examiners and Character & Fitness Committee. He has to pay the bar exam fees, then has to take the Wyoming bar exam and the multi-state bar exam.
I ENCOURAGE EVERYONE TO WRITE THE STATE BAR OF WYOMING AND THE STATE BAR OF CALIFORNIA TO INFORM THEM OF KNISS' DEPLORABLE CHARACTER. THE BAR NEEDS TO KNOW AND THE PUBLIC DESERVES TO KNOW AND THE PUBLIC DESERVES TO BE PROTECTED....
Your postings on the Internet serve to educate the public to reduce the number of future victims of this predator.

Kniss is no longer an attorney is Wyoming. He would have to take the Bar exam and take the ethics exam and pass a background check which would be a serious problem for him at this point.
The key now is to locate new evidence, new victims and get them to file complaints against Kniss with the State Bar of California so he can be disbarred there too. Once disbarred in California his opportunities to harm clients will be more limited than before.
He screwed over a lot of people so invest your time and money to track him down, track down victims and inform them that they are not alone and to assure them that Kniss has been suspended in California and he deserves to be disbarred. Don't wait!

It appears that Jon R. Kniss is receiving his comeuppance! The California State Bar site indicates Disbarment is upcoming!

I cannot tell if this is a done deal or there will be proceedings to initiate disbarment, but either way, I suspect the State Bar has finally gotten wind to the true character of this despicable individual.

9/27/2012 Disbarment 11-N-11381
