The law license of Barbara S. Freemon of Nashville was suspended by the Tennessee Supreme Court for one year. A petition for discipline was filed against Freemon on March 8, based upon two complaints. The first complaint alleged that Freemon, who agreed to serve as trustee for an inter vivos trust set up to manage her brother’s assets, did not return the trust assets to the named beneficiaries upon his death. The second complaint alleged that Freemon accepted a non-refundable fee to represent clients in a codes dispute, promising to file an action within 45 days. Freeman failed to file any action on their behalf yet refused to refund the full fee to the clients. Download the BPR notice.
