0 Programs with David Carr, Esq.

Mr. Carr is an attorney in solo practice in San Diego, California. Since 2001, his practice has focused on attorney discipline defense, bar admissions, legal malpractice, attorney professional responsibility and ethics advice. Mr. Carr is a 1986 graduate of Loyola Law School in Los Angeles and attended UCLA as an undergraduate. Following several years of practice in commercial law and business litigation, Mr. Carr joined the State Bar as a staff attorney in 1989. He served as counsel to the State Bar’s investigative oversight panel from 1989 to 1992. Mr. Carr served on the National Organization of Bar Counsel’s advisory committee to the American Bar Association’s McKay Commission on discipline enforcement in 1991. Mr. Carr moved from oversight of the discipline system in 1992 to prosecuting cases as a Deputy Trial Counsel in the discipline prosecutor’s office of the State Bar. After five years trying discipline, admissions and reinstatement cases before the State Bar Court Hearing Department, he began to specialize in appellate advocacy before the State Bar Court’s Review Department, resulting in ten published decisions between 1997 and 2000. During the shutdown of the State Bar in 1998 after former Governor Wilson’s veto of the State Bar dues bill, Mr. Carr worked as an unpaid volunteer in the discipline system. He successfully argued as amicus counsel to the California Supreme Court that a special master be appointed to oversee discipline system spending (In Re Attorney Discipline System (1998) 19 Cal.4th 582.) After the Supreme Court ordered a special dues assessment to revive the discipline system, Mr. Carr became an Assistant Chief Trial Counsel and manager of the general trials unit in Los Angeles in 1999. He helped to re-build the Los Angeles discipline office by hiring and training many of its current discipline prosecutors. He also worked on discipline policy issues as the Chief Trial Counsel’s liaison with the State Bar’s Committee on Professional Responsibility and Conduct (COPRAC) and the State Bar Court Executive Committee. Mr. Carr returned to private practice in 2001. Mr. Carr is a member of the San Diego County Bar Association where he serves on the Legal Ethics Committee.
