Florida Bar Against Attorney Marc Randazza – Violation and Unprofessional Conduct
Marc John Randazza, 2764 Lake Sahara Drive, Suite 109, Las Vegas, Nevada, public reprimand followed by one year of probation, effective 30 days following a September 3 court order. (Admitted to practice: 2003) Randazza began negotiating a retainer agreement with the company doing business under the name Oron while he was in negotiations against Oron. Randazza was found to have violated Nevada Rules of Professional Conduct: 1.8 Conflict of Interest. This is a reciprocal discipline action based on an order from the Southern Nevada Disciplinary Board of the State Bar of Nevada. (Case No: SC19-188)
The State Bar of Nevada charged Randazza for violating Nevada Rules of Professional Conduct on nine counts. He broke the rules in regards to:
Conflict of Interest: Current Clients,
Conflict of Interest: Current Clients: Specific Rules,
Imputation of Conflicts of Interest,
Declining or Terminating Representation, Advisor,
Restrictions on Right to Practice,
Randazza two-timed his clients, who were pornographers, by working for other clients, who were also pornographers. He “solicited illicit payoffs,” said HuffPost. In 2010, Randazza tried to bribe a website so that he wouldn’t sue them, again. This solicitation was a violation of the Nevada Rules of Professional Conduct.
The State Bar of Nevada sued for the suspension of Randazza’s license in 2018 with violations of ethics. His license was suspended for a year. However, the State Bar did not put the suspension into effect.
Randazza actually pleaded guilty to two violations: a bribe and a shady loan. He appealed his suspension to the Nevada Supreme Court, but was rejected.
Avvo Warns: Approach Randazza with ‘Extreme Caution’
Legal registry Avvo rated him 1 out 10 with “extreme caution” because he had received disciplinary action. Several five-star reviews boosted his profile, however, some of them were very long and very poorly written. They also talked about irrelevant points, including “love and respect.”

Charles Edward Hobbs II, 1469 Market St., Tallahassee, suspended for one year (retroactive to his 91-day suspension in case SC18-1234 effective July 8, 2020) effective immediately following a September 24 court order. (Admitted to practice: 2000) Hobbs failed to adhere to the appellate rules of procedure in handling a client’s criminal appeal by failing to respond to several court orders, resulting in the dismissal of the client’s appeal. In two other cases, Hobbs failed to diligently handle matters and communicate with clients. In a fourth matter, Hobbs filed a notice of appeal in his client’s direct appeal from a judgment and sentence. Thereafter, his handling of the case resulted in the Court issuing an Order to Show Cause why the appeal should not be dismissed. After Hobbs failed to respond, the Court relieved him as counsel of record. (Case No: SC20-194)
Mary Catherine Bonner, 656 Johns Drive, Cleveland, Georgia, disciplinary revocation with leave to seek readmission after five years effective immediately following a September 10 court order. (Admitted to practice: 1979) Bonner received a fee from an incarcerated prisoner to file an appeal in federal court. She did not file the appeal and was not a member in good standing of that court at the time the fee was received or anytime thereafter. The Florida Supreme Court found Bonner in contempt on June 22, 2020, with the imposed suspension effective within 30 days of that order for failing to respond to the Bar in the underlying matter. (Case No: SC20-1184)
The Florida Supreme Court in recent court orders disciplined 11 attorneys, revoking the license of two, suspending six, and reprimanding two. Four attorneys were also placed on probation. Attorneys suspended for periods of 91 days and longer must undergo a rigorous process to regain their law licenses including proving rehabilitation. Disciplinary revocation is tantamount to disbarment.
