Board Report and Orders (May 10, 2021)

Summary: In re Donald R. Harris. Bar No. 485340. May 10, 2021. The Board on Professional Responsibility recommended that the D.C. Court of Appeals disbar Harris for intentional misappropriation and that he be required to make full restitution to the client as a condition of reinstatement. While retained to assist a husband and wife with the return of their minor children who were in the custody of a local child services agency, Harris dishonestly and fraudulently charged fees to handle a child custody case that he was not able to handle; failed to adequately explain the matter to the client; failed to maintain records and engaged in misappropriation; violated the Rules pertaining to the treatment of advance unearned fees; and knowingly made a false statement of fact in connection with a disciplinary matter in violation of Rules 1.4(b), 1.5(a), 1.15(a), 1.15(e), 8.1(a), and 8.4(c).
