DAVID GLENN CURRIE [#153669], 54, of Chino, was disbarred Oct. 11, 2013 and ordered to comply with rule 9.20 of the California Rules of Court and pay restitution.Currie was disbarred after his default was entered for failing to respond to a notice of disciplinary charges against him. Under rule 5.85 of the State Bar’s Rules of Procedure, a lawyer can be disbarred if he or she does not seek to have the default set aside within 180 days. Also, the charges are deemed admitted.Currie engaged in the unauthorized practice of law in another jurisdiction, entered into an agreement for collecting an illegal fee, failed to maintain client funds in a trust account, committed moral turpitude, failed to pay client funds promptly and failed to release a file. The misconduct stemmed from two client matters. In one matter, Currie held himself out as eligible to practice law in Nevada when he was not and failed to get his client’s permission before accepting money from the client’s sister to represent the client.In the other matter, Currie misappropriated $89,875.82 that was supposed to remain in his client trust account pending a client’s divorce. He also failed to return the client’s papers and files after the client fired him. Currie was ordered to pay $106,402.94 plus interest in restitution.He had one prior discipline. In 2009, Currie was suspended after stipulating to three counts of misconduct, including failing to perform legal services competently, refund unearned fees and keep a client informed of developments in his case.
