Davidson County lawyer Hal Wilkes Wilkins was suspended on Wednesday for one year. The Board of Professional Responsibility filed a petition for discipline arising from one complaint of ethical misconduct alleging that Wilkins, who was disbarred on July 22, 2014, and again on January 28, 2015, sought and opened a lawyer’s trust account during the period of disbarment. Wilkins held himself out as a lawyer admitted to practice in this jurisdiction. The court ordered Wilkins to close the bank account within 30 days, or be subject to contempt proceedings.
