DAVID Q. MEYER [#287761], 36, of San Diego, was disbarred Feb. 19, 2017 and ordered to comply with rule 9.20 of the California Rules of Court and make restitution.Meyer’s misconduct stemmed from his involvement in 2015 with Ford & Weinberg, an escrow company that assists with financial transactions. Meyer was the company’s escrow agent and agreed to accept escrow funds on behalf of the company by placing them in his client trust account. In each of the five matters Meyer was disciplined for, the complainant was seeking a standby letter of credit in the amount of $3 million. If no standby letter of credit was received within a certain time period, the money was supposed to be returned to the complainant.Rather than review the terms of the escrow agreement, Meyer relied on a non-attorney employee of Ford & Weinberg for guidance. At the company’s direction, Meyer transferred the complainants’ money in all five matters, even though no standby letters of credit were issued. Ford & Weinberg stopped responding to emails and letters and, in December 2015, took down its website.In all five matters, Meyer breached his fiduciary duties by not maintaining the complainants’ funds in his client trust account or in escrow and misappropriated and failed to maintain entrusted funds.He was ordered to pay $319,946 plus interest in restitution.Meyer engaged in multiple acts of misconduct, was unable to account for entrusted funds, demonstrated indifference to his misconduct and deprived the individuals depositing their funds into his escrow of their money.He entered into a pretrial stipulation with the State Bar.
