On Tuesday, February 7, 2023, the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania ordered the temporary suspension of Chester Springs Attorney David Addison Grant Murray.

The case is styled In the Matter of David Addison Grant Murray and was brought by the Office of Disciplinary Counsel under case no. 3 DB 2023.

The temporary suspension was in consideration of the Joint Petition to Temporarily Suspend Murray filed by the parties in relation to the disciplinary charges against Murray pursuant to Pa.R.D.E. 214(d)(5), which states:

At any time before a plea or verdict or after a guilty plea or verdict of guilt in the criminal proceeding, Disciplinary Counsel and the respondent-attorney may file with the Court a joint petition for temporary suspension of the respondent-attorney on the ground that the respondent-attorney’s temporary suspension is in the best interest of the respondent and the legal system.

In view of the foregoing facts, the Court ruled for the imposition of discipline upon Murray pursuant to the parties’ petition to temporarily suspend Murray.

The Order reads:

“AND NOW, this 7th day of February, 2023, the Joint Petition to Temporarily Suspend an Attorney is granted, and David Addison Grant Murray is placed on temporary suspension. . . Respondent shall comply with all the provisions of Pa.R.D.E 217.

This Order constitutes an imposition of public discipline. SeePa.R.D.E. 402(c)(2)(providing an exception to the confidentiality requirement of Rule 402 when “the investigation is predicated upon a conviction of the respondent-attorney for a crime”).”

Mr. David Addison Grant Murray practiced in Chester Springs, prior to the suspension. He graduated from Penn State Law in 2020. He has been admitted to practice in Pennsylvania, license no. 330036. His info can be found on LinkedIn.
