Sumner County lawyer Michael Scott Collins was publicly censured yesterday by the Tennessee Supreme Court pursuant to Tennessee Supreme Court Rule 9, Section 44. Collins entered into a representation agreement with a client that was vague, ambiguous, and without sufficient clarity for the client to understand the scope of Collins’ representation. He also billed the client for work performed by a paralegal without first obtaining the client’s consent. Download the BPR notice.
