Attorney Jeannie M. Bobrink of Kansas City, Missouri, has been voluntarily disbarred following a Jan. 30 Missouri Supreme Court order after admitting to violating multiple rules of professional conduct.

Bobrink admitted to violating rules that cover attorney diligence, communication, safekeeping property, declining or terminating representation and misconduct, according to the Missouri Supreme Court's order. The state high court's order was in response to Bobrink's motion to voluntarily surrender her license to practice law in Missouri and a report and recommendation by the chief disciplinary counsel.

"This court, thus advised, now orders that the surrender of the license of Jeannie M. Bobrink be accepted and that said license be canceled," the order said. "It is further ordered that the name of Jeannie M. Bobrink be stricken from the roll of attorneys in this state, that she be disbarred, and that her right and license to practice law in this state is hereby terminated."

Bobrink also was ordered to pay all costs in the matter but the amount of costs was not specified in the order.

This week's order was the second time Bobrink has been disbarred in Missouri. She was disbarred by default in a December 2010 Missouri Supreme Court order, according to the office of the chief disciplinary counsel report for 2010. That order was vacated a few months later after she filed a motion of that her default disbarment set aside and she was granted 30 days to file a required answer to the chair of the advisory committee, according to the 2010 report.

In a previous discipline, Bobrink was reprimanded following a March 2012 Missouri Supreme Court order over allegations she violated professional conduct rules. Bobrink was alleged to have violated rules regarding attorney communication, declining or terminating representation and misconduct, according to the high court's 2012 order. Bobrink also was required to pay $750 in costs.
