ROBERT G. SCURRAH JR. [#82766], 69, of Tustin, was disbarred Feb. 4, 2017 and ordered to comply with rule 9.20 of the California Rules of Court.Scurrah was charged with not filing a declaration of compliance with rule 9.20 as required by the California Supreme Court. The requirement stemmed from an earlier suspension for collecting upfront fees in nine loan modification matters.The State Bar Court found that Scurrah repeatedly violated a 2009 consumer protection law that prohibits advanced fees for those services.He was disbarred after his default was entered for failing to respond to a notice of disciplinary charges. Because he did not seek to have the default set aside or vacated within 90 days, the State Bar moved to disbar him under its Rules of Procedure. The charges were deemed admitted.

ROBERT G. SCURRAH JR. [#82766], 68, of Tustin, was suspended from the practice of law for six months and until he makes restitution to clients for improperly collecting advance fees for loan modification services. He was placed on probation for one year. He must pass the test given by the State Bar Ethics School and the MPRE. The order took effect June 18, 2016.The case arose out of Scurrah’s dispute with the State Bar over changes to the Civil Code in 2009 that prohibited collection of fees in advance of the performance of loan modification services. Scurrah sought to structure his fee agreements to comply with the statue, but he was found by the State Bar Court in 2015 to be in violation. That resulted in a 90-day actual suspension and a restitution order totaling more than $25,000. Subsequently, the State Bar filed new disciplinary charges alleging 23 additional violations, to which Scurrah stipulated culpability.
