September 19, 1997

GEORGE JOHN RONIS [#58152], 55, of Chula Vista was suspended for two years, stayed, placed on two years of probation with an actual 30-day suspension, and was ordered to take the MPRE within one year. The order took effect Sept. 19, 1997.

Ronis stipulated to misconduct in six consolidated matters, all involving his sloppy handling of funds. He failed to maintain the required balance in his client trust account and misappropriated funds, did not promptly pay his client’s medical provider, and did not promptly inform another client of settlement funds and delayed payment to her. He also failed to keep a client apprised of developments in his case.

In mitigation, Ronis practiced law since 1973 without any discipline. When his law firm dissolved in 1991, the firm’s trust accounting responsibilities were shifted to an office employee who was unable to handle the job properly. Ronis’ misconduct was the result of his unfamiliarity with accounting practices. He has since hired a CPA to manage the account and repaid all funds owed his clients. He had good character references, was cooperative with the bar and took immediate corrective action upon learning of the management problems.
