Attorney Peter Lukevich of Seattle; repeat offender, certified loser

The Washington State Supreme Court presented Peter Lukevich with a law license in 1989. Pete then went to work for a law firm by the name of Trickey (I’m not kidding!) and Applewick.
In 1998, then Governor Gary Locke made a monumental error in judgment when he appointed Lukevich as a District Court Judge in Yakima County.
During his time on the bench in Yakima County, the Washington Judicial Commission found Judge Lukevich guilty of the following pattern of misconduct:
  • Repeatedly interrupting defendants in refusing to allow them to answer his questions
  • Using an angry, disdainful and demeaning tone of voice when addressing litigants
  • Mimicking a litigants speech
  • Engaged in protracted dialogues with litigants regarding their constitutional rights that were humiliating, intimidating and inappropriate
As a consequence of his egregious misconduct, the enablers for Judicial Misfits sitting on the Judicial Commission punished Peter by gifting him with a complimentary admonishment. In a lame attempt at levity, the Commission required that Pete attend at his expense training in communications and demeanor style. What in the hell do they teach at demeanor training? Is this a joke or what?
After leaving the bench and in keeping with his low standards of ethical conduct, the Washington State Bar found him guilty of the following misconduct:
  • Failing to properly explain a matter to his client
  • Failing to act with diligence
As a consequence of his second bite at the Misfit Tree, the apologists for Attorney Misfits as the Washington State Bar punished Pete by presenting him with a complimentary censure.
As we speak (ca. Dec 2011) Pete the Loser practices law at 2611 125th Street NE in Seattle.
