The Georgia Supreme Court has accepted an Augusta area attorney’s voluntary surrender of his law license.
Ronald Pak who faces a charge of attempted armed robbery in Columbia County asked the court to accept his surrender, according to the Court’s ruling released Monday.
Pak informed the court that he suffers from mental illness sufficient to impair his ability to effectively practice law, according to the court’s opinion.
Pak is under indictment in Columbia County Superior Court on a charge of attempted armed robbery. According to earlier reports in The Augusta Chronicle, Pak is accused of an attempted holdup of the Wells Fargo Bank on Furys Ferry Road in Martinez on June 3, 2013. Pak is being held without bond.
According to the Supreme Court order, Pak has closed his law office and turned files to his clients.
Pak was admitted to practice law in 1992. His office was located on Deans Bridge Road in Augusta.
