ALLan Dollison: So tomorrow is the big day. Appreciate the Times-Standard mentioning this in their paper today. It should be a great event. Also after my event is Operation Safe Streets-Eureka in the same building. Their event kicks off at 4 pm.


  1. I'm having trouble understanding this. John Groeby doesn't even work on campus. Steve Hackett is the chair of the Economics department. Maybe it means former chair.

  2. It says he is a former Navy SEAL and chairman of the HSU Ecoonomics Dept. the former covers that. Here is a recent article that he penned.

  3. Note to troll: How many times are you going to re-post that one? You really need to see a shrink. Seriously. Get help. You are pathetic, and you're wasting everyone's time with your stupidity.

    ALLAN LEE DOLLISON [#177299], 34, of Saipan was suspended for one year, stayed, placed on two years of probation with an actual 60-day suspension and until he makes restitution and proves his rehabilitation, and was ordered to take the MPRE within one year and comply with rule 955. The order took effect Aug. 26, 2000.

    Dollison stipulated to 16 counts of misconduct in four consolidated cases: three counts each of failing to perform legal services competently or respond to client inquiries and improperly withdrawing from representation, and two counts each of failing to return client files, refund unearned fees and cooperate with the bar’s investigation.
    As part of one case Dollison was handling, he agreed to file a motion to set aside a default that had been entered against his client. After not responding to his client’s inquiries, Dollison told her he had filed a motion that was denied by the court. He provided a copy of the motion, a notice of ruling which stated an attorney had appeared on behalf of the other party.
    In fact, Dollison never filed a motion, there was no hearing, he fabricated the notice of ruling and forged signatures on documents he sent to the client. His misrepresentations were acts of moral turpitude. He never refunded his fee.
    He vacated his office and did not notify clients or the courts, he failed to appear at hearings and failed to follow court orders. Two cases were dismissed as a result of failure to prosecute. One client’s wages were garnished to pay a default judgment, and other clients were forced to hire new counsel to complete their bankruptcy petition.
    In mitigation, Dollison started a solo practice soon after his admission to the bar, but due to a lack of experience and business acumen, he accepted difficult cases for relatively low fees. He abandoned several matters when he moved to a new office in order to stabilize his practice. He also suffered from depression and is under the care of a psychiatrist.

  5. You're late to the party, 11:23. That's been covered here. Long ago. And he addressed it in his announcement, if you read the write-up at the link.
