Memphis Lawyer Suspended for 5 Years

The Tennessee Supreme Court on Feb. 4 suspended Memphis lawyer Michael R. Tucker for five years and ordered him to pay restitution in the amount of $66,667.67 and pay the board's expenses within 90 days. The court found that Tucker failed to disburse settlement funds to a client, converted funds for his personal use, made misrepresentations to the client about repayment of the money, and failed to communicate with the client in a reasonable manner. Tucker entered a conditional guilty plea admitting to the misconduct. Download the BPR notice
