“Suspension of Endres for six months is wholly inadequate. David Endres should be disbarred, if not put in jail. His fraudulent robo-signing eviction mill caused the mass eviction of thousands of tenants and undermined the integrity of the judicial system. He should never be permitted to practice law in this state again.“

Robo-signing California Attorney Should be Disbarred, Not Suspended, For Illegal Evictions after Foreclosure
The State Bar of California has issued an order suspending Davis attorney David Endres for illegally evicting residents of foreclosed properties. Endres has been notorious for pursuing eviction cases on behalf of major banks after foreclosure in violation of federal, state and local law. The order calls for Endres to be suspended from practice for six months and required to pay the costs of the proceeding in the amount of $4,000.
It is encouraging to see the Bar taking action to police unethical eviction lawyers in California. These attorneys are displacing massive numbers of renters and homeowners, using illegal tactics to do the banks’ dirty work. Meanwhile, the banks that hire these lawyers falsely claim that they are following all tenant protection laws.
Year after year in this foreclosure crisis, an estimated two hundred thousand renters in California lose their homes because their landlords fail to pay their mortgages and the properties go into foreclosure. After foreclosure, banks typically purge the properties of residents, including innocent tenants who want nothing more than to continue paying rent and living in their homes. Post-foreclosure owners routinely violate tenant protection laws, including the federal Protecting Tenants at Foreclosure Act which established a minimum notice period of 90 days for eviction. These evictions displace families are create prolonged vacancies and blight in communities across California.
