Nashville lawyer Ashley Denise Preston was suspended on April 17 for one year, but the Tennessee Supreme Court allowed her to serve the entire suspension on probation so long as she meets several conditions, including engaging a practice monitor and participating with the Tennessee Lawyers Assistance Program. She also may continue practicing law during the probationary period. The discipline was taken in response to complaints alleging that Preston neglected clients’ cases, failed to communicate with clients and the Board of Professional Responsibility, and failed to respond to court orders after failing to file a brief in a criminal case.
