Vancouver, May 30, 2018 – A hearing panel of the Law Society has accepted a consent proposal ordering the disbarment of former Vancouver lawyer Angiola-Patrizia De Stefanis. In the consent proposal, De Stefanis admitted professional misconduct in relation to improperly withdrawing or misappropriating estate monies held in trust, misleading a beneficiary of the estate she was administering and making false representations to the Law Society.

At the time that the hearing panel received the consent proposal, De Stefanis had been a former member. The order for disbarment takes effect immediately, which means that she may not practise law.

The hearing panel’s written reasons are available here.
