September 6, 2013

RONALD GREGORY PEAKE [#193868], 59, of Redondo Beach, was disbarred Sept. 6, 2013 and ordered to comply with rule 9.20 of the California Rules of Court and to pay restitution.

Peake was disbarred as the result of a default proceeding, which occurred after he failed to file a response to the notice of disciplinary charges against him. Rule 5.85 of the California Rules of Procedure provides that a lawyer can be disbarred if he or she does not seek to have the default set aside within 180 days. The charges are also deemed admitted.

Peake committed seven counts of misconduct, including improper withdrawal from employment and failing to perform legal services with competence, file a lawsuit on a client’s behalf, respond promptly to client phone calls, return a client’s file or to refund his client $2,000 in unearned fees. Peake also failed to cooperate with a State Bar investigation and did not comply with the conditions of private reproval he received.

Peake was ordered to pay $2,000 plus interest in restitution.
