CLARENCE LIVINGSTON JR. [#85773], 65, of Oakland, was disbarred July 26, 2014 and ordered to comply with rule 9.20 of the California Rules of Court.Livingston was disbarred after his default was entered for failing to respond to charges he committed seven acts of misconduct in two client matters. Because he did not seek to have the default set aside within 180 days as required by rule 5.85 of the State Bar’s Rules of Procedure, he was disbarred.The charges were deemed admitted. In one matter he failed to communicate significant developments by not promptly informing his clients that he had been suspended from the practice of law, engaged in the unauthorized practice of law and failed to promptly turn over his client’s file upon termination of employment. In the other matter, he failed to competently perform legal services, respond to client inquiries, cooperate in a State Bar investigation or promptly turn over his client’s file upon termination of employment.
