Professional Misconduct

This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority.

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

    updated

    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.”
