Professional Misconduct

This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority.

  1. Public reproval with/duties
    issued in CA, 2005


    This sanction means the attorney did something wrong but may still practice law. The Bar placed conditions on the lawyer's activities to try to prevent a recurrence of the wrongful act.

    Peter’s comment: “I entered into a profit sharing agreement with a client to pay for fees owing. Although my client did not receive profit from the 4-films I recovered in a lawsuit, and he never paid me any portion of receipts, the Bar found that I failed to advise him in writing to “seek the advice of an independent lawyer” under Rule 3-300(B). Cal. Lawyer 3/06 p. 66. Ironically, I got a Judgment for my client of: $2,148,049 against distributor; $3,000,000 president; & $1,300,000 in punitives. LASC #BC029647.”
