On September 25, 2015, bar counsel received Christie’s response to the page 6 letter sent on July 21, 2015; Christie had requested an extension for his response due date while he sought counsel. It should also be noted that Christie was involved in a motor vehicle accident on June 26, 2015, and was out of the office from June 26, 2015 through August 3, 2015.
Christie acknowledges that he was absent from the office for a significant period of time, and attributes this to ongoing medical issues. He asserts that at the advice of his doctors he worked from home June 2014 through November 2014 because of “neck-related nerve issues”; he had also admittedly spent “much of 2009 and 2010” working from his home due to a broken neck. Despite his medical issues, Christie claims that he maintained daily contact with his staff and would receive daily FedEx packages which contained client information and mail. If Christie was in fact, medically required to stay home because of his injuries, it is difficult to imagine that he was in a state that allowed him to diligently represent his clients, and properly supervise his employees. On December 16, 2015, bar counsel provided Christie’s counsel, Aaron White, Esq., with medical release forms. Bar counsel is seeking medical information to determine what state Christie was in during his alleged medical leave; to date the releases have not been returned.

...time he spends away from the office. Although we are waiting for the return of the bank subpoena, there is no indication that Bozena was responsible for handling any of the office finances. Additionally, despite the fact Christie framed his response in a way that implies Bozena intentionally had files shredded; she doesn’t appear to be directly responsible for the files being destroyed. According to Pamela and Bozena the shredding company accidently took boxes that had not been marked for shredding. Bozena asserts that the boxes taken in error most likely contained duplicate copies of documents and sensitive medical record, not entire case files. In addition to the outstanding subpoena, I have reached out to Sarah Burnham, the bookkeeper, to discuss what she recalls about the negative IOLTA account in February of 2015; to date she has not returned my phone call.
