State Bar recommends 30-day suspension, probation for attorney Genis

Posted By Administration, Thursday, March 19, 2015

The State Bar of California has recommended a 30-day suspension and two-year probation for Santa Barbara attorney Darryl Wayne Genis for misconduct.

Hearing Judge Richard Honn found in February 2014 that Genis was an "effective but confrontational criminal defense attorney" and that he violated court orders in two superior courts. Honn recommended a 90-day suspension, which Genis appealed. 

Honn, who presided over Genis’ disciplinary trial, made the recommendation based on criteria including that the attorney made a false and malicious State Bar complaint, committed an act of moral turpitude and failed to obey court orders.

Genis specializes in DUI cases and is representing Santa Ynez resident Benjamin Bettencourt in a fatal DUI case.
