Aundreas W. Smith of Williamson County today was publicly censured by the Tennessee Supreme Court. On May 23, 2017, the Board of Professional Responsibility filed a petition for discipline against Smith, which included one complaint of misconduct alleging that she took her fee from medical payments issued by her client’s insurance company and deposited the medical payment checks into her operating account rather than her IOLTA account. She also failed to provide her client with a written settlement statement. The court ordered Smith to pay restitution to one client, complete an additional three hours of continuing legal education with a focus on management of IOLTA accounts and accounting associated with contingency fee cases, and pay costs and expenses to the board.
