Ex-Michael Jackson Lawyer Disbarred for Commingling Funds to Evade Creditors

A former lawyer for Michael Jackson has lost his law license, in part because he commingled personal and private funds in an effort to evade creditors.

The California Supreme Court recently denied an appeal of a state bar ruling against the lawyer, Brian Oxman, report the Associated Press and The Wrap. A State Bar Court had found that Oxman commingled funds and failed to notify the bar that he had been fined by a judge, the Los Angeles Times reported in January. The bar court also noted two prior disciplinary cases against the lawyer.

Brian Oxman’s representation of Michael Jackson wasn’t his only claim to fame. He also appeared as an expert on several programs, including Good Morning America, Nancy Grace and Larry King Live, The Wrap says.
