Davidson County Lawyer Censured

Davidson County lawyer Hugh Edward Garrett received a public censure from the Board of Professional Responsibility Nov. 6 for failing to render competent representation; failing to act with reasonable diligence; failing to maintain reasonable communication with his client; and failing to take reasonable steps to expedite litigation. He essentially abandoned his client’s case on appeal and ignored the requests of the Court of Criminal Appeals to either file a brief or dismiss the matter, the court said. Download the BPR notice.
