The General Legal Council (GLC) confirmed today that on June 18, a three-member disciplinary panel ordered that Pearson be disbarred.
In a last-minute bid to retain his licence, Pearson filed an application with the GLC seeking to have the decision of the disciplinary panel put on hold.
On October 12 last year, Pearson was found guilty of professional misconduct, the GLC confirmed.
Pearson is the latest in a string of attorneys who have been disbarred in recent years.
According to the complaint lodged with the GLC, Pearson represented a client in the purchase of a house through Victoria Mutual Building Society (VMBS).
