Four county lawyers disciplined by State Bar

Client funds overdrawn, misappropriated, comingled

Four county lawyers were disciplined by the State Bar in July.

Robert Sibilia of Oceanside was suspended from practicing law for 90 days and put on probation for a year. He was charged with misappropriating funds from his clients' trust funds — an act of moral turpitude.

Sharon Marie Drew was suspended for six months and put on probation for a year for making transfers and withdrawals from her client trust account knowing there were insufficient funds — misconduct involving moral turpitude.

Beryl Dean Droegenmueller of Vista was suspended for a year. He failed to turn in probation reports related to previous misbehavior. He has committed "multiple acts of misconduct" and showed indifference and a lack of candor, said the Bar.

Todd Albert Warshof was suspended 60 days and put on probation for one year after admitting that he commingled personal funds with those in his client trust account. On some occasions, the account balance fell to zero.
