16 Lawyers Suspended for Fee and IOLTA Violations

The Tennessee Supreme Court last week issued two new orders suspending Tennessee-licensed attorneys who did not pay their 2012 registration fee to the Board of Professional Responsibility and/or did not file a mandatory compliance statement that eligible client funds are held in accounts participating in the Interest on Lawyers' Trust Accounts (IOLTA) program. The lists reflect lawyers not in compliance as of their May birthdates. Those who have been reinstated are noted as such. Previous orders covered lawyers with birthdates in January through April.
